Henry Head Walking Track

Overview

Grab your backpack and follow Henry Head walking track as it curves along the clifftops and beaches of Kamay Botany Bay National Park. This easy, four kilometre walk will reward you with dramatic views across Botany Bay and the Pacific Ocean beyond as you make your way to Endeavour Lighthouse at Henry Head.

There two options for where this walk can be started - La Perouse Museum at Cann Park on Anzac Parade; or
the carpark near the park entry gates on Anzac Parade, opposite Goorawahl Avenue.

Take a break to admire the views, and check out Henry Head’s historic World War II battlements – part of Sydney’s early coastal defence systems.

If all this isn’t enough to pique your interest, there’s always the bird watching. Kookaburras, lorikeets and yellow-tailed black cockatoos are just some of the species you might encounter as you stride along this walk. Reptiles such as skinks, blue-tongue lizards and water dragons are also common around here.

Once you reach Henry Head you have the option of turning back to retrace your steps, or, continuing the walk a further 1.2 kilometres to explore Cruwee Cove and the headland at Cape Banks.
