Royal National Park is 15,087 hectares, Heathcote National Park is 2826 hectares, and Garawarra State Conservation Area is 999 hectares. They form part of a large network of national parks, government-owned lands (e.g. Department of Defence, Sydney Water), and reserves between the Great Dividing Range to the west and Australia’s eastern shoreline. The parks are vital in maintaining a network of conservation areas and providing wildlife corridors and habitat protection for numerous animal and plant species.
