Information

The two headlands of Botany Bay (La Perouse and Kurnell) are rich in Aboriginal and European history. In 1770 the area was the meeting place of cultures, and it still is today.
At La Perouse you can take a tour of Bare Island Fort, learn about the area at
Laperouse Museum and Visitor Centre, or enjoy one of the local beaches (excellent for diving). At Kurnell visit the Discovery Centre's museum and shop, or join an Aboriginal Discovery ranger for an insight into living with the land - phone 9542 0649 for Discovery information and bookings. The Banks-Solander Track is a self-guided walk, the Monument Track is self-guided and wheelchair-accessible, and Cape Solander provides a superb vantage point for watching seasonal whale migrations.
Access 15-30 km south of Sydney. Entry to La Perouse is from Anzac Parade. Entry to Kurnell is from the end of Captain Cook Drive. Vehicle entry fee applies at Kurnell.
