Did you know that Royal National Park is the world’s oldest national park, older even than the world-famous Yosemite and Yellowstone parks in the USA? It’s also the only significant national park in the world contained within a capital city (Sydney).

It’s our most precious environmental resource. Plus it’s a great place to visit. Which is all the more reason to protect it.

Sutherland Shire Environment Centre is campaigning to have the Royal listed for World Heritage Register of the United Nation’s UNESCO.

This project was begun by Bob Walshe OAM (the Centre’s beloved founder and patron), who championed it up till the time of his death in early 2018.

We’ve achieved some significant milestones with the publication of The First National Park, A Natural for World Heritage by Dr Geoff Mosley, and our beautiful video, Royal National Park: A Place for Belonging, a community-created film which tells the story of the significance and beauty of the Royal National Park and Royal Reserves, for people and planet.
