Ex­plor­ing our unique Na­tional Parks NSW & QLD

Out & About with Kids - - NATIONAL PARKS -

In 1872, US Pres­i­dent Ulysses S. Grant de­creed the world’s first Na­tional Park - iconic Yel­low­stone Na­tional Park - and Aus­tralia cre­ated the world’s sec­ond Na­tional Park just five years later.

137 years ago - on 26 April 1879 - the Royal Na­tional Park, south of Syd­ney in NSW, was pro­claimed, and for­ever pre­served for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions.

It’s hard to imag­ine what our world might be like to­day if our fore­bears had not taken these im­por­tant ini­tia­tives to pro­tect mil­lions upon mil­lions of hectares of land around the world - over 500 na­tional parks across 28 mil­lion hectares in Aus­tralia alone. In these pris­tine park­lands, na­tive flora and fauna flour­ish and, with an open in­vi­ta­tion to visit, we are the ben­e­fi­cia­ries - priv­i­leged to be able to ex­plore so many di­verse and unique en­vi­ron­ments and nat­u­ral play­grounds that are such an im­por­tant part of Aus­tralia’s her­itage.
