Cook's Landing: The Meeting of Two Cultures
Cape Solander Drive Kamay Botany Bay National Park, Kurnell, NSW, 2231, Australia
29th April 2017
Every year on 29 April, a ceremony is held at Kamay Botany Bay National Park to commemorate the Meeting of Two Cultures - when crew from Cook’s HM Endeavour first set foot on land at Kurnell in Botany Bay in 1770. Along with Endeavour’s landing, the ceremony acknowledges the traditional owners of our land - the Australian Aboriginal people - and the meeting of the indigenous inhabitants with the European explorers. This year marks the 247th anniversary of Cook's Landing.
