We decided to head down to Kamay Botany Bay National Park on the weekend. The last time we were in the area was when we went kayaking and we’ve been wanting to come back to explore more of the area since then. It’s our first time down the southern headland of Botany Bay and it is such a pretty place!
Kamay Botany Bay National Park is a 45 minute drive from Sydney, where we live. We arrived mid-morning and had a nice little stroll around the Monument Track. It’s a easy track perfect for families and kids, and lazy people like us.
After our stroll, we got back in our car and drove along Cape Solander Drive. We parked at the Leap Car Park and headed to a couple of lookouts. It looks like a great spot for scuba diving! There were also groups of scuba divers around either finished with their dives or jumping in! After the looksouts, we decided to head inland at attempt a short bushwalking track which was loads of fun.
We don’t drive down this way very often but whenever we do, we’re always reminded why we love to come down here! There is always something new to discover and it’s worth spending at least half the day here. My only tip would be to try and get here bright and early in summer. The sun gets pretty intense in the afternoon and you don’t really want to be out and about by then!
