Planning a visit

Earth Friendly Lunch

Please encourage students to bring an Earth Friendly Lunch for their visit to Kamay Botany Bay National Park. We have no bins at many of the sites so will ask students to take their rubbish home with them. We do have a worm farm and compost bins for compostable rubbish at the centre.

An Earth Friendly lunch may include:

  • sandwiches wrapped in grease-proof paper
  • fresh fruit. It comes with its own compostable packaging.
  • biscuits or cake in a paper bag that can be composted also.
  • a drink in a reusable container. This can be washed and used again.

Weather

As many of our programs are run predominately outside, we may have to postpone your visit if the weather looks unfavourable. Heavy rain and strong winds make outside programs potentially dangerous.

Tides

If you are planning an excursion to Kurnell or Cronulla for rock platforms, please look at the tides (pdf 49 KB) as you study your school calendar. A low tide in the morning or middle of the day is ideal.
