Kurnell

Near the place where Captain James Cook first set foot on Australian soil in 1770.

It’s a nice area on the southern shore of Botany Bay, isolated enough for it to be easy to pretend you’re nowhere near Sydney. There’s almost a small coastal town vibe to Kurnell even though it’s only 22 kilometers from the city centre.
