We stopped off to enjoy a pizza from the local take-away and a wander around the rock pools on the foreshore. We enjoyed a wander through the free La Perouse Museum on the headland on the northern shore of Botany Bay. You can follow the...More

Stopped into the national park for the afternoon and had a wander beside the golf course. There is a small cemetery with some history of local nurses, if that takes your fancy. Nice to do on a sunny day.

Botany Bay holds one of Sydney's best kept secrets, as Captain Cook discovered in 1770. Beautiful white powder-sand beaches that stretch for miles - the cool, calm, clean waters make this one of the best swimming beaches I have seen. My husband and I took...More

Botany Bay can be eerily beautiful at dusk, particularly on warmer evenings. Taking a walk along the cliffs and watching the sun set is an experience in itself but particularly beautiful at Botany Bay. There are small tracks and some safe places on the rocky...More
