Local Guide For Cape Solander Reef Break and Kamay Botany Bay National Park

Caps Solander, a heavy right-hand reef break for daredevils, is inside the Kamary National Park. It’s not for the faint-hearted, as the waves are dangerous and break right in front of the rocks. The break was originally popularized by the movie “Bra Boys,” a documentary about surfers at Maroubra.

The name “Ours” suggests that local surfers may not have welcomed visitors in the past, but they later clarified that anyone is welcome except bodyboarders. However, it’s unclear if this is still the case, as there are YouTube videos of experienced bodyboarders surfing the wave, which is well-suited for bodyboarding with its steep face and power.

The wave comes into life when it gets bigger than 6 feet, and because it is a fast-breaking wave, surfers often need jet-ski-assisted tow-in surfing to catch it.

Cape Solander is more well-known to the public as a whale-watching hot spot, offering spectacular views from high ground with a wide vista of the Pacific Ocean.

Whale Watching At Cape Solander.

The newly built whale-watching platform at Cape Solander is a great place to catch a glimpse of humpback whales during their annual migration. The platform is easily accessible with ample parking, and the entry fee of $8 per car is valid for the entire day. Once you have paid, you can come and go as you please, making it a convenient and affordable way to enjoy this popular whale-watching spot.

Walking tracks at Kamay National Park

Kamay National Park has a variety of walking tracks suitable for all ages and abilities. The man-made pathways are easy to follow, even for children. However, some tracks can be dangerous near cliffs, so it is important to supervise children carefully.

I have spent the last 15 years in Northern Beaches in Sydney and loves beaches. I have raised three beautiful children, all loving beaches and waves. I hope you share the same passion.
