Please note
  • Please note that the Kurnell precinct of Kamay Botany Bay National park is open at 7am and gates are locked and the park is closed after 7:30pm (August – May) and 5:30pm (June – July).

Like the Banks-Solander track, the Burrawang walk begins at the Kurnell Visitor Centre.

This easy walk tells the story of the first meeting of European and Aboriginal culture. A soundscape, featuring Aboriginal language, children laughing and clap sticks will have you feeling like you've stepped back in time and give you a sense of the strong Aboriginal connection to Country.

The Burrawang walk takes you past several of the area’s historic sites, including the welcome wall, the freshwater stream, the meeting place, Banks’ Memorial, Ferry Shelter Shed and Captain Cook’s Landing Place.

Along the route, you’ll see several interpretive signs outlining the park’s cultural and natural history.
