Design selected for new visitor centre

Following community consultation in 2020, the design of a new Visitor Centre and related visitor infrastructure in Kamay Botany Bay National Park at Kurnell has been selected.

Concept design by Neeson Murcutt + NeilleThe Kamay 2020 Project Board endorsed the selection of the concept design by Neeson Murcutt +Neille following a multi-stage tender process and public exhibition. The new centre will improve visitor facilities and capacity and enhance the Kurnell Precinct of Kamay Botany Bay National Park as a place of significance to all Australians that contributes to our sense of identity as Australians.

The new visitor centre will occupy the site of the old visitor centre at Kurnell and will feature a timber-framed structure with rammed earth walls. New visitor infrastructure include an accessible loop walkway through the park taking in the commemorative sculptures along the foreshore, an interpretive scientific collection garden, a dancing circle and other spaces which offer cultural education opportunities. Together, the new facilities will increase recognition of Aboriginal heritage and culture and ensure that balanced story-telling communicates our shared history.
