Sydney: Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Destination Revisited

The Kamay Botany Bay National Park is a heritage-listed protected national park located in Kurnell, Sydney. The 1,130-acre national park is situated approximately 16 kilometres south-east of the Sydney central business district, on the northern and southern headlands of Botany Bay. The northern headland is at La Perouse and the southern headland is at Kurnell.

The area is recognised for its outstanding cultural and historic heritage values to Australia. It is a place where botanist Sir Joseph Banks and naturalist Dr Daniel Solander collected plant specimens in 1770 as part of the first landing of the Endeavour in Australia. Banks and Solander collected many iconic Australian plant species, including some that later became type-specimens which have important scientific and research value.
