Engaging the community

The 250th anniversary of the first contact between Aboriginal Australians and the crew of the Endeavour provides a unique opportunity to take a fresh look at this nationally significant place as one that respects and interprets many layers of history.

To help guide engagement during the drafting stage of the master plan project, a community and stakeholder engagement plan was prepared. The engagement plan focused on the delivery of a series of engagement activities targeted to defined community and stakeholders, and based on their known or likely interests. Context consultants worked with NPWS to deliver these engagement activities and to analyse and report on the results. Groups engaged included, but were not limited to, Aboriginal communities, the local Kurnell community, park users and visitors and school and education users.

The full summary of the engagement activities to date can be found in the Summary of community and stakeholder engagement: Kamay Botany Bay National Park, Kurnell (PDF 133KB).
