For the past 10 years, the Australian Society of Marine Artists has maintained a Perpetual Exhibition of members’ art at the Visitor Centre in Kamay Botany National Park, near Kurnell. Originally an exhibition featuring paintings inspired by the week-long visit of Captain Cook and the crew of HMS Endeavour in 1770 on that very site and early Aboriginal and Colonial history, it has continued. Our artists have widened their scope to take in a much wider view of the Kurnell area – the scenery, local boating and fishing vessels, the flora and fauna as well as the more recent development of large commercial shipping visiting the oil refinery and the container terminal on the northern side of Botany Bay.
Spare half a day for a visit to the Park and consider packing a picnic lunch and your swimmers to take advantage of the stunning wide grassy parkland with azure blue bay vista. Walk the sculpture path and visit the Visitors Centre which offers a delightful gift shop, perpetual ASMA exhibition and plenty of local information
Kurnell Visitor Centre features an art gallery, theatrette, historical exhibition, shop and cafe. Be sure to pay a visit to the centre on your visit to Kamay Botany Bay National Park. You can enjoy a coffee before discovering more about the significance of the area. Be sure to visit the film Kamay Botany Bay before you leave (Covid restrictions currently affecting some attractions).
Mon – Fri 10:00 – 3:30pm, Sat, Sun & public holidays 9:30 – 4:00pm. Closed Christmas Day.
