Like the Banks-Solander track, Burrawang walk begins at the Kurnell Visitor Centre. A large section of this walk is paved and wheelchair-accessible.
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.
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 many interpretive signs that tell you about the park’s rich cultural and natural history. Three large bronze sculptures of significance to the Gweagal Aboriginal People were installed along the walk in 2020 to acknowledge the 250th anniversary of the encounter between Aboriginal Australians and the crew the HMB Endeavour on 29 April 1770.
