This is the book that tells WHY our (Royal) National Park should be granted World Heritage Listing by the United Nation's UNESCO:
It was the first (1879) of Australia's now hundreds ofnational parks, and the first dedicated national park in the world
It arose around the same time as the world famous Yosemite and Yellowstone parks in USA;
It exhibits amazing and diverse flora and fauna, and outstanding geology and scenery;
It is the only significant national park in the world contained within a city (Sydney);
Is keenly studied by scientists, and tertiary, secondary and primary students;
It attracts 4 million visitors a year, and rising.
Royal National Park is certainly 'a natural' for inclusion in UNESCO's World Heritage List!
