Kamay Botany Bay National Park encompasses 458 hectares of coastal bushland bordered by spectacular sandstone cliffs. Delve into the modern and Aboriginal history of the peninsula at the Discovery Centre. There is a fantastic purpose built Whale Watching platform at Cape Solander where you can see these awesome creatures as they pass on their annual migration. The platform is perfect those without sea legs...and undoubtedly one of Sydney's best whale watching spots. June/July is the best time to see humpback whales as they migrate to warmer waters. Whales have been known to swim as close as 200m from the coast. Friendly volunteers are there to provide information throughout the season. The diverse waters of the park offer a wide range of aquatic activities - from scuba diving and snorkelling to swimming, surfing or rock fishing. Short trails for cycling, open fields and secluded picnic areas complete this nature lovers wonderland.
