Bound for Botany Bay

On our way home from Los Angeles, we spent a few days in Sydney, staying near Botany Bay. At Captain Cook’s Landing Place at Kurnell in Kamay Botany Bay National Park, we stopped to admire these two monuments. They commemorate the two botanists in whose honour the bay was named – Sir Joseph Banks (above) and Daniel Carl Solander (below).
