About Royal National Park

The Royal National Park, colloquially the Nasho or the Royal,[2] is a protected national park that is located in Sutherland Shire, south of Sydney, New South Wales, in eastern Australia. The 15,091-hectare (37,290-acre) national park is about 29 kilometres (18 mi) south of the Sydney central business district near the localities of Loftus, Otford, and Waterfall.

Founded by Sir John Robertson, Acting Premier of New South Wales,[3] and formally proclaimed on 26 April 1879, it is the world's oldest surviving purposed national park (pre-dating Yellowstone in the United States),[4][5][6][7] and the first to use the term "national park" anywhere in the world. Its original name was National Park, but it was renamed in 1955 after Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia passed by in the train on the way from Wollongong during her 1954 tour.[8] The Royal National Park is the oldest gazetted national park because Yellowstone's original gazetting was "public park or pleasuring ground".[9]
