Suburb Overview

Kurnell is a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. It is 22 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Sutherland Shire.

Kurnell is on the southern headland of Botany Bay. Cronulla and Woolooware are the only adjacent suburbs. La Perouse is located opposite, on the northern headland of Botany Bay.

The eastern side of the peninsula is part of Botany Bay National Park, with sheer sandstone cliffs dominating the coastline. Towra Point Nature Reserve is located on the western side of the suburb.

There are two theories for the origin of the name Kurnell. It is either a deviation of an Aboriginal word "collonel" or a deviation of the name of an early settler, John Connell.

Kurnell is considered to be

Captain Arthur Phillip, arriving in H.M.Armed Tender Supply on the 18th. January 1788, before the First Fleet arrived, following Cook

Cook's landing place is located on the north-eastern part of the national park. Sutherland Point is named in honour of a crew member, Scotsman Forby Sutherland, who died of tuberculosis during their eight days here and was buried on the shore. Cape Solander is named after Swedish botanist Daniel Solander, a colleague of Joseph Banks. Inscription Point was named by the Australian Philosophical Society in 1822 when they secured a plaque to the cliff face to mark the point of the Endeavour

Dampier Street, Tasman Street and Torres Street commemorate other navigators in Australia

The first land grant of 700 acres was made in 1815, to Captain James Birnie, who established Alpha Farm. 'Alpha' is the first letter in the Greek alphabet and the name was thought appropriate for the first farm in the area. In 1821 John Connell Junior was also granted land here and used it for timber getting. His father purchased Alpha Farm from Birnie and by 1842 the Connell family's estate was over one thousand acres in size. In 1860, Alpha Farm was sold to Thomas Holt , who owned most of the land that stretched from Sutherland to Cronulla. The area was known as Birniemere for a time and Holtmere was once a locality.

Before the 1920s, Kurnell was used by fisherman as schools of several varieties of fish inhabited the Botany Bay foreshore and the open sea. Fishermen built numerous huts and shacks which sheltered them for the weekend fishing. During the Great Depression, from the late 1920s, many severely affected low-income families took up residence there, in a shantytown.

The northern part of the peninsula is a historic site known as Captain Cooks Landing Place with a number of memorials located here
