Australia Attractions

The park itself is separated in two places, La Perouse and Kurnell- and straddles the headlands of both bays. Kurnell is also quite close to the beaches of Cronulla. While much smaller than other national parks, Botany Bay has trails for walking, museums and has great fishing spots, where you dont need a license. There is also great diving and snorkeling here and is a fantastic place for whale watching.

City of Melbourne

Take in a cricket match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and take a ride on the Puffing Billy Railway when you visit Melbourne.
