Kamay Botany Bay National Park
Sheer sandstone cliffs dominate the park's dramatic coastline, making for a beautiful view. In spring and summer, spectacular displays of wildflowers on the heath attract a variety of nectar eating birds. 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, including the Green and Golden Bell frog and the Little Tern. 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 take part in a significant project to revitalise the "meeting place" by helping to restore connection to country and bringing back the original habitat as surveyed by Captain Cook`s botanists, Banks and Solander. Tasks will include weeding large areas of invasive plants such as asparagus fern for future planting activities.
