Filled with significant sites, remarkable landscapes and heritage-listed attractions, Kamay Botany Bay National Park offers an idyllic daytrip from Sydney. Separated by the marine-rich waters of historic Botany Bay, the park’s northern and southern headlands feature a unique combination of natural and cultural heritage.
Explore the southern side around Kurnell, where in 1770, local Aboriginal people encountered the crew of the Endeavour, or the northern side at La Perouse, where French explorer Comte de Laperouse was last sighted in 1788. Walk the Burrawang track, picnic at Commemoration Flat or go diving at Bare Island.
On 20 September 2004 the Kurnell Peninsula Headland was included in the National Heritage List.
Experience the annual whale migration from Cape Solander between June and November. To find the best whale watching vantage points, and to plan your next coastal adventure, visit the Wild About Whales website.
