“It’s fascinating to think that these plants are the same types collected by these guys all those years ago.”
Banks-Solander track highlights the important botanical value of Kamay Botany Bay National Park.
Many of Australia’s plants were first collected and described in the area by Cook's botanists, Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, in 1770. The track features informative panels showcasing numerous plant types that fascinated Banks and Solander more than 240 years ago.
Starting at the Kurnell Visitor Centre, this well-maintained track offers an easy 1km walk past eucalypts, banksias and ferns.
Banks-Solander track is a self-guided walk, so you can take as long as you like to complete it. It branches off from Yena track, so continue on if you prefer a longer walk.
