KURNELL is without a doubt the most significant historic site to modern Australia. Additionally it adjoins Towra Point Nature Reserve, which is an area of great cultural and natural heritage significance. It is a wetland of international importance, with approximately 200 bird species having been recorded. To the East is Botany Bay National Park with coastal scenery unsurpassed in all Australia.
Sheer sandstone cliffs dominate the park's dramatic coastline. The low heath and open woodland that characterises Kurnell's vegetation is supported by relatively infertile sandy soils. In spring and summer, spectacular displays of wildflowers on the heath attract a variety of nectar and seed eating birds.
Colourful parrots, honeyeaters and a variety of other birds can be seen along the coast and in the heaths
and forest of the park.
KURNELL there are so many things to see and do. Not only are there safe beaches
and swimming, but fishing,
boating, diving, barbeques, wind-surfing, bush
walking or just a wonderful place
to let the kids run and play – yet so few people seem to know of KURNELL.
