Sydney - National Parks & Wildlife

Royal National Park
Situated on the southern outskirts of Sydney, the Royal National Park is the second oldest National Park in the world. A railway station between Loftus and Bundeena on the suburban Illawarra line provides easy access to the park. Alternatively, a ferry operates from Cronulla near the railway station to Bundeena. Lace up your walking shoes and discover secluded beaches and typical "Aussie Bush".

Kur-ing-gai Chase National Park
On the northside, this park preserves sandstone cliffs, eucalypts and pockets of rainforest on the shores of Pittwater and Broken Bay. Take the ferry each Saturday and Sunday from Palm Beach to Bobbin Head or hire a houseboat from Akuna Bay or Bobbin Head. Picnic facilities and barbeques at Bobbin Head, Cottage Point and West Head, which are all accessible by car.

Sydney Harbour National Park
Just 15 minutes from the heart of Sydney are rugged sandstone cliffs, shady walking tracks and secluded beaches. Enjoyable bushwalking for all ages. Hidden beneath the natural heathland of Sydney Harbour National Park lies a fascinating history. Daily tours explore "Pinchgut Island" which was once used as an open-air prison, transformed into a gun battery and adopted as the site for Australia's only Martello Tower, to become Fort Denison. Special tours explore the historic Quarantine Station (above) and the tunnels and gun emplacements that were also once part of the Sydney Harbour Defence system.

At La Perouse the historic Cable Station (1882) houses an Aboriginal Art Gallery and the worldclass La Perouse Museum, commemorating the voyage of the French Navigator La Perouse.
