Australia has a long history of National Parks, the Royal National Park on the outskirts of Sydney is the second oldest National Park in the world, having been declared in 1879, just after Yellowstone National Park in the USA.

There are numerous parks spread all throughout the country, including of course, the Great Barrier Reef, encompassing the largest living entity in the world and the only one visible from space.

Other parks protect the wildlife that live in desert areas, tropical regions, mountains and along coastal areas.

State Parks

There are also numerous state parks, reserves and botanical gardens, all designed to protect the plants and fauna of this beautiful and diverse continent. All of them are worth visiting and many are easily accessible, though not all.
