It’s time for World Heritage Listing!

Royal National Park is certainly ‘a natural’ for inclusion in UNESCO’s World Heritage List! It’s a true “Place for Belonging”. Watch the video – then sign the petition!

The ‘Royal Reserves’, namely Royal and Heathcote National Parks and Garawarra State Conservation Area, should be granted World Heritage Listing by the United Nation’s UNESCO. Royal was the first (1879) of Australia’s now hundreds of national parks, and the first dedicated national park in the world, and arose around the same time as the world famous Yosemite and Yellowstone parks in USA. The area exhibits amazing and diverse flora and fauna, outstanding geology and scenery and is the only significant national park in the world contained within a capital city (Sydney). Royal is keenly studied by scientists and tertiary, secondary and primary students. The park attracts over 4 million visitors a year.
