Sydney Airport and Port Botany have totally changed the character of Botany. For many years, locals enjoyed the suburb’s relative isolation and made full use of its location on the northern foreshores of the Bay. During the mid-20th Century this all changed as large stretches of land were reclaimed to expand the airport and construct the port.

Come and discover how these two major transport hubs have impacted and altered the landscape by joining us for a guided bus/walking tour on Friday 9 September 2016, 10 am -12 noon. 

To RVSP email museum@botanybay.nsw.gov.au or call 9366 3802

If you can’t make it, look out for our self- guided walking tour which will be available to download from izi.travel from September.  

This event is part of History Week 2016
