Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Topic: Environment

National Parks and Wildlife Service is seeking feedback on the draft plan of management and draft master plan for Kamay Botany Bay National Park.

What's this about?

Kamay Botany Bay National Park is highly significant as the site of first contact in 1770 between Aboriginal Australians and the crew of Lieutenant Cook’s Endeavor. It is also the place of last sighting of the French explorer La Perouse in 1788, the locality for many plant species first collected by Banks and Solander, and contains important samples of endangered ecological communities.

Two plans are being developed to protect, enhance and present the special values of the national park.

A master plan will improve the Kurnell precinct, with new visitor facilities and quality visitor experiences that respect and highlight the cultural importance of this place.

An updated plan of management for the whole park will define how National Parks and Wildlife Services will look after special places and values, provide opportunities for visitors, and work with the community to manage this park. The values identified in the plan of management inform what improvements can occur in the park.

The draft plans are available for public review and comment, providing an important opportunity for the community to have a say in future management directions for the park.
