The National Parks Plan of Management for Kamay Botany Bay National Park which was written in 2000 is now being revised. You can have your say on priorities for the new plan.
National Parks manage most of the public open space at La Perouse (all except Frenchman’s Bay, Timbery and Cann Parks in the photo at left). National Parks are responsible for Congwong and Little Congwong beaches, Cape Banks, the Military Heritage at Henry Head and Cape Banks, The Minmi Wreck, the Depression Camp heritage in Happy Valley, the Historic Coast Cemetery, Brown’s Rock Fishing Platform, the Laperouse Museum within the Cable Station, the Receveur tomb, Laperouse Monument, Macquarie Watchtower, Bare Island and Astrolabe and Cruwee Coves. They are responsible for keeping down weeds such as bitou, protecting native fauna and flora (including Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub) and eradicating feral animals which prey on native animals or destroy native vegetation.
They are responsible for toilets overlooking Congwong Bay and the toilets at Cape Banks(not open to the public) and those in the Visitor Centre(in the Cable Station) which are only available when the the Cable Station is open (Sundays only). At Kurnell the Visitor Centre is open 7 days.
There is also an opportunity to link the marine environment, as has been done at Bouddi National Park
If you would like to see improved facilities, better access and conservation of key sites at La Perouse then let National Parks know by completing this survey www.surveymonkey.com/r/kamaybotanybay by 23rd October 2016.
There are 25 questions with a number only applying to Kurnell. Kamay Botany Bay National Park is managed in two separate National Parks regions – La Perouse through Metropolitan North East and Kurnell through Metropolitan South West. This project is coordinated by Metropolitan South West.
