Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Community & Stakeholder Engagement Plan

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service

Kamay, NSW

Kamay is the Indigenous name for Botany Bay.

The James Cook expedition landed here in 1770, claiming Australia for the British Empire, and irrevocably altering the lives and futures of the Aboriginal people of this place.

The 250th anniversary of this moment was marked in 2020, a time to reflect on this time and all that has flowed from it.

Context (now GML Heritage) led the community engagement as a Master Plan was shaped, and a new Plan of Management for the whole park was written.

Chris Johnston guided the project team, just as she did back in 2008 when Context prepared a Conservation Management Plan for The Meeting Place Precinct (Kamay Botany Bay National Park).
