Royal National Park is Australia's oldest national park. The diverse natural environments include beaches and estuaries, rainforest, heathland and tall forests with fascinating plants and wildlife. The park features historic locations and sites of Aboriginal culture. It is popular for bushwalking, cycling, surfing, canoeing, picnicking and whale watching. Jibbon Beach is found in the eastern section of the township of Bundeena, an outstanding example of Sydney's beautiful beaches and country of the Dharawal People.
