Can you imagine having a Port and Airport as your neighbours? That is exactly what has happened to the Sydney suburb of Botany. For many years, locals enjoyed the suburb’s relative isolation and made full use of its location on the northern foreshores of Botany Bay. This all changed with the development of Sydney Airport and Port Botany.

Come and discover how these two major transport hubs have impacted and altered the landscape by joining us for a guided bus tour. Bookings are essential as places are limited.
