Sydney Day Trips | Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Like any great metropolitan area, it’s just as much about what you can do a short distance from the city as what you do in it. Hence, I’m branching the blog out to some quick hit favorite day trips from Sydney as I experience them. First up: Kamay Botany Bay National Park. You can enjoy this park on the northern (La Perouse) or southern (Kurnell) sides of Botany Bay. I’d definitely suggest heading to the Kurnell side as you will be treated to some stunning views.Kamay Botany Bay National Park Sydney Day TripThe park is gorgeous and just a short 50 minute drive out of the city (about 30kms depending on where you live). You pay a small $8 AUD fee to enter the park and, wow, is it worth every cent.Kamay Botany Bay National Park map Kamay Botany Bay National Park cliffsThere’s whale watching during the fall and winter months and a fantastic little viewing stand from which to enjoy ‘the show’. Our visit was definitely off season but what a reason to come back for a second visit.Kamay Botany Bay National Park whale watchingWithout question, though, it’s the incredible cliffs and crashing water that make this place extremely special and very, very good for your soul. I could have easily spent a few hours rejuvenating but sadly I would have needed SPF 9,000 to survive the sun this day!Kamay Botany Bay National Park Sydney day trip  Kamay Botany Bay National Park Sydney day trip  Kamay Botany Bay National Park Sydney day tripLong story short: add Kamay Botany Bay National Park (the Kurnell side!) to your Sydney day trip list. It’s easy to get to and you will so enjoy the reward of standing at the top of the cliffs enjoying a little communing time with Mama Nature! Xoxo – JW
