Captain Cook Landing, Sydney: 1 reviews and 1 photos
On the 29th April, 1770, Captain James Cook sailed into Botany Bay on the ship 'Endevour.'
He landed in the area which is now known as 'Kurnell' and stayed for 8 days.
This site is of great importance, because it was here that Captain Cook, and Governor Philip, first set foot on Australian soil and raised the flag for the British.
Where Captain Cook first set foot on Australian soil, the tide was out, so you can actually go and stand on the rock where he stood in 1770.
A plaque is located on the rock.
The 1.5km Monument Track walk, takes you past important landmarks.
Stop at the Discovery Centre where there are exhibitions and you can read about the History of the area.
Address: Cape Solander Drive, Kurnell
Directions: Located near Silver Beach on the Kurnell Peninsula headland
