Botany Bay is beautiful and unique, we walked with the kids from Kyeemagh which is the start of the bayside walk all the way to Dolls Point. You must get on this track whether it’s by bike, car or on foot. On foot or bike...More

Not to far from the city, Botany Bay has a lot of history and some great places to explore. The National park is good and La Perouse is a nice little town to explore with some great beaches and walks.

Botany Bay was where Captain Cook first landed in Australia and if alternative history was to happen, the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge could have been located here instead. However that never happened because the first penal fleet thought the Botany Bay was a...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.

There is not a listing for the Botany Bay National Park that includes Congwong Bay, Henry Head and Cape Banks. There is a very well maintained coastal walking track from La Parouse to Little Bay around the north headland of Botany Bay. Superb ocean views,...More

Hi Carol, I know the area really well and I am quite sure what you speak of doesn't exist. I guess Simona is correct in that it must be in Kent, England.

We will be staying in Botany Bay over New Years. Travelling from Canada, arriving Dec 30th. We want to know if there is a good location to watch Harbour Bridge fireworks, relatively close to there. Something informal, easy to get to and from. Appreciate any suggestions. Bea

Whereabouts will you be at Botany Bay? It's a large bay and not close to Sydney Harbour, you will have to travel to see the fireworks.
