The Royal National Park became a people's park in 1879. It spans more than 130 sq km of windswept heath, rain-forested gullies and magnificent coastline. Of the beaches, Wattamolla, Garie and Burning Palms are standouts. The park has over 100 km of trails, and is also beloved of surfers and cyclists. Drive in or catch the ferry from Cronulla.
