Walk 02 of the South Coast Series, this walk starts at Malabar then follows the coast line around the southern side of Long Bay, Buchan Point, Little Bay and Cape Banks at the entrance to Botany Bay. It then follows the northern coast of Botany Bay around Cruwee Cove, Henry Head, Congwong Bay, La Perouse, Frenchmans Bay, Yarra Point and Yarra Bay. It features beautiful ocean and bay views as well as historical sites including Henry Head and La Perouse.
"A small lighthouse sits on Henry Head, backed by a sunken gun emplacement, tunnels, underground magazines and observation posts. Some of these date from 1881-85 and were part of a defence system designed to protect a 'back door' attack on Sydney by a landing at Botany Bay."
