Sheer sandstone cliffs dominate the park's dramatic coastline, making for a beautiful view. In spring and summer, spectacular displays of wildflowers on the heath attract a variety of nectar eating birds. During the winter months, migrating whales are regularly seen making their northerly voyage and may again be spotted heading south in the Spring.
The Kurnell peninsula supports a number of endangered species, including the Green and Golden Bell frog and the Little Tern. Our site marks the actual landing spot of the first British explorers to Australian shores and the first "meeting place" between them and the local Dharawal people in 1770.
Volunteers will take part in a significant project to revitalise the "meeting place" by helping to restore connection to country and bringing back the original habitat as surveyed by Captain Cook`s botanists, Banks and Solander.
We can organise a pickup from the following area:
8.00am Outside Countrylink terminal entrance, Central Station near taxi rank.
Or meet us there:
9.00am Botany Bay National Park visitor information centre off Cape Solander Drive.
3.00pm at the project site. At 3:00pm you will depart from the site. Volunteers will be returned to Central Station by 4:00 pm.
Please wear sturdy shoes/boots, long pants, and long sleeve shirts. Hats, sunscreen, and water are a must.
If for any reason you cannot make it on the day or if you are going to be late or cannot find the meeting point, please contact the Team Leader on 0475 965 817. If you need any more information please give the Sydney office a call on (02) 9331 1610.
