This is the main entry to Botany Bay National Park at La Perouse.  The Information Station here contains details on key features in the park, contact telephone numbers and a map.

  These are two of the panels.  The reverse side has information about the Depression Camp in Happy Valley in the 1930s.

In 2000, the same year that this Information Station was erected, the National Parks Service also upgraded a walking track between the two beaches in Congwong Bay. The then local member, Mr Bob Carr, declared the new access in the park as opening up the park for the enjoyment of families in Sydney’s South East. 

In 2005 the track that had led from Little Congwong Beach to Browns Rock was closed.  This track is shown on the map at the Information Station.  (see circled in yellow)

Browns Rock is a popular area for fishers. The closure of the track has meant that this area can only be accessed via a steeply graded track. There are signs warning of fines of over $3000 for anyone found using the easier access – the closed off track.  At low tide fishers take their chances and are seen walking around the rock platforms.  In addition, the walk from the main carpark on the Loop is about 3 times the distance as previous.

Local volunteer community groups have requested that the track be reinstated and also have suggested working with National Parks to obtain funding for provision of a coastal track extending around the beaches, and ultimately connecting at Henry Head.  This would provide a full loop allowing walkers to enjoy the beaches and for local  guides to interpret the coastal landscape.  Interpretative signage was proposed for this walkway to highlight significant natural heritage and aboriginal cultural heritage and to enhance tourist opportunities.

  In response to the most recent request for the track to be reinstated, this letter has been received from the NSW Minister with responsibility for the National Park – Mr Frank Sartor.  Mr Sartor in 2005, at the time the track was closed, was the Minister for Planning and it was he who overruled the Government’s Commission of Inquiry into Port Botany and approved the construction of the third terminal which Commissioner Cleland had recommended against.   (Note that the only modification to the letter has been to remove private contact details.)

The following information is contained on the map at the Information Station:

(1)    Information ;(2) Jennifer Street Boardwalk – The bushland area here includes a rare and endangered ecological community known as the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub.  This community of native plants if protected under the Threatened Species Conservation Act.

    We get told in mantra style that Parks don’t have resources but do those in decision making position know how to use the resources they do have and do they know how to increase their resources by partnering volunteer community groups.

    Just for the record it was Botany Bay National Park Plan of Management (ISBN 0 7 313 6355 8 ) that was adopted by then Minister Debus on 27 May 2002 not Kamay Botany Bay National Park Plan of Management as referred to in the letter. There is no record of the La Perouse Headland Conservation Plan of Management being finalised.

    Thanks for your beneficial post. As time passes, I have been able to understand that the actual symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the actual build up connected fluid between your lining of your lung and the torso cavity. The illness may start from the chest region and multiply to other body parts. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include fat loss, severe respiration trouble, throwing up, difficulty taking in food, and irritation of the face and neck areas. It must be noted that some people with the disease tend not to experience any kind of serious signs at all.

    this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field.
