The water quality was great, but check out my CRONULLA page to see an actual beach on this day- where the water was remarkably clean.
I Visited Botany this time again on a clear day where the ocean was flat and very clean. September 2003.
The waves were clashing onto the rocks. The wind was extremely gusty. Compare these water effects to the shots taken a few days ago.
On our second visit. It was an extremely windy day, the waves were violently clashing and i seriously had to watch out about not getting toppled away down the cliffs :-S
You definately can't swim at Botany Bay National Park. WAY too dangerous, plus i wish you luck finding a way to get in the water. The nearest good beach is only 5km away at Cronulla.
We arrived after a rainy day. The day was cloudy with sunny breaks. Puddles of water on top of the rocks caused great effects.
Some cliffed areas are up to 40 metres above the sea. The rocks are crumbled with thousands of years of erosion
You get great glowing white/yellow stones in the sun. After rain the rocks get a muddy sand that looks like a totally different terrain!
