Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Kamay Botany Bay National Park is located at Kurnell and La Perouse in Sydney. Explore the historic Captain Cook's landing place on a school excursion, to learn about the rich Aboriginal history and cultural significance of the area.

Filled with significant sites, remarkable landscapes and heritage-listed attractions, Kamay Botany Bay National Park offers an idyllic daytrip from Sydney. Separated by the marine-rich waters of historic Botany Bay, the park’s northern and southern headlands feature a unique combination of natural and cultural heritage.

Explore the southern side around Kurnell, where in 1770, local Aboriginal people encountered the crew of the Endeavour, or the northern side at La Perouse, where French explorer Comte de Laperouse was last sighted in 1788. Walk the Burrawang track, whale watch from Cape Solander, picnic at Commemoration Flat or go diving at Bare Island.

On 20 September 2004 the Kurnell Peninsula Headland was included in the National Heritage List.
