Botany Bay holds one of Sydney's best kept secrets, as Captain Cook discovered in 1770. Beautiful white powder-sand beaches that stretch for miles - the cool, calm, clean waters make this one of the best swimming beaches I have seen. My husband and I took our 6yr old grandson and spent 2 hours swimming, playing and building sand-castles. It was... More

Botany Bay can be eerily beautiful at dusk, particularly on warmer evenings. Taking a walk along the cliffs and watching the sun set is an experience in itself but particularly beautiful at Botany Bay. There are small tracks and some safe places on the rocky outcrops to sit as well as the option for longer walks if one is inclined.... More

The cliff tops are so beautiful here and its easy to spot the whales. They could do with having more toilets in the area! Views of the port and access to Captain Cooks landing.
