In 1770 James Cook landed on Botany Bay and discovered Australia. There is a fine historical museum here which tells the story of his expedition.

Not a large national park, compared to others, there are some nice walks to do, as well as walking along the Rocks and little beaches. There are some nice picnic spots as well as toilets and car parking. A really nice spot for a stroll...More

The park itself isn't anything special to walk through, however the views along the coastline are refreshing. This is a good park for a relaxed, low-intensity walk with company or headphones. There are some good photo opportunities at the cliff front.

There are treed lawns close to the Cook monument and visitor centre with BBQs and parking. The coast of the peninsula is much more dramatic and Cape Solander is possibly the best part, with extensive rock ledges as well as stairs to get down to...More

Plenty of better alternatives around Greater Sydney. The lack of a path with only the road for much of the route is a major disappointment. The views are good but rarely spectacular, poor relation to royal national park.

The visitor centre staff are very helpful and can give you directions and ideas for your visit. Try the walking trail up to Cape Solander.
