Very easy

This short and easy walk to to the Quibray Bay viewing/lookout platform provides some lovely views and opportunities for bird watching. The platforms give you views across the heart of the very special Towra Point Nature Reserve. The nature reserve is very close to Sydney and most of it is closed to the public to protect the very fragile ecosystems and the resting area for migratory birds. This walk gives views that most Sydneysiders never see.

Download & Print Map and Notes




2 hrs 30 mins

5.7 km One way


123 m

Hard track

This walk starts from Kurnell’s Botany Bay Visitors Centre and heads south through the national park. The track winds through dry gum forest until it breaks out into heath, joining onto the Cape Baily walking track. As it continues south, through small sand dunes and in between hanging swamps, the track winds in and out of the cliff top coastline to the end of the Sir Joseph Banks drive. The side trip up to the Cape Baily lighthouse is well worth the small climb.

Cape Banks Circuit

3 hrs

6.6 km Circuit


182 m

Hard track

This Cape Banks Circuit has a lot to offer and is thoroughly recommended. The walking travels over beaches, through coastal forest and across exposed headlands. Historically, this walk shows glimpses into the fortifications required during both World Wars. The optional side trip to the coast hospital cemetery, with over 2000 graves, is worthwhile. The Cape Banks Circuit makes for a fascinating walk, both scenically and historically, and is recommended.
