Time Out says

Despite its historical significance as the original landing site of Captain Cook and the First Fleet, the sprawling oil refinery and desalination plant that dominate this little peninsula off Botany Bay might make you think twice about spending a significant amount of time here. However, this ambitious walk along the southeastern edge of Kamay Botany Bay National Park, far from any hint of the heavy industrial complexes nearby, is a hike you can really make a day of. It's largely exposed so expect to be looking more than a little windswept by the end of your amble. As well as coastal cliffs, you can also explore thick heaths and sandy dunes, and be sure to take a breather at the Cape Baily Lighthouse, which has spectacular ocean views and a stunning vantage point on Botany Bay.
