Human Bones Found In Sydney National Park

Bones discovered in bushland south of Sydney are believed to be human, NSW Police say.

A crime scene was established at Sir Bertram Stevens Drive in the Royal National Park on Saturday after the bones were discovered by a passing motorist.

The driver had pulled over when they noticed something suspicious, a police spokeswoman told AAP on Monday when confirming authorities now "believe the bones are human".

It is believed that the bones had been buried in the park for quite a long time before the discovery was made. 

Forensic investigators are now working to identify the person, possibly looking at DNA and dental records.

The site where the bones were discovered is walking distance from where Matthew Leveson's skeleton was dug up in May last year, following a decade-long search. However, it is believed the latest discovery is unrelated.

Anyone with information - or noticed suspicious behaviour in the Royal National Park - is being urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
