Kamay Botany Bay National Park is a nationally significant site. The place is of particular importance to Aboriginal peoples, which is acknowledged and connections to Country celebrated. The park supports several threatened plant and animal species and provides diverse recreational opportunities.

The plan of management enables the implementation of a master plan for the Kurnell section of the park, which will include construction of new visitor infrastructure and a commemorative instalment near the Endeavour landing site.

This is the second plan of management for this park, with the previous plan adopted in 2002.

This document should be read in conjunction with the Kamay Botany Bay Planning Considerations (2019), which is a supporting document that includes detailed information on park values (e.g. cultural heritage and threatened species) and the threats to these values.
