The Meeting Place Precinct in Kamay Botany Bay National Park, Kurnell, is a place of profound cultural and historical significance. It is a symbolic meeting place of cultures, from the first meeting between Captain James Cook and Aboriginal Australians, to later meetings involving people of differing nationalities and the seeds of a successful multicultural nation.

Botany Bay National Park is highly significant to all Australians because it includes the site of first contact in 1770 between Indigenous Australians and the crew of Lieutenant James Cook’s Endeavour and may be seen as a symbolic meeting place of cultures. It is also the place of last sighting of the French explorer Compte de Laperouse in 1788, the type locality for many of the plant species first collected by Banks and Solander, and contains important samples of endangered ecological communities.
