Kamay Botany Bay National Park – Sydney


Sheer sandstone cliffs dominate the park’s dramatic coastline, making for a beautiful view. Our site marks the actual landing spot of the first British explorers to Australian shores and the first “meeting place” between them and the local Dharawal people in 1770. Volunteers will engage in conservation activities within the heritage listed area to revitalise the original habitat as surveyed by Captain Cook`s botanists. Tasks will include weeding large areas of invasive species for future planting activities.

During the winter months, migrating whales are regularly seen making their northerly voyage and may again be spotted heading south in the Spring. The Kurnell peninsula supports a number of endangered species such as the Little Tern. We cant wait to see you out there!
