St. Michael's Golf Club


St. Michael's Golf Club stands amongst Australia's best golf courses.

With a location immersed within the Botany Bay National Parkland, adjoining the Pacific Ocean, course designer's Glancey and Moran (1938) had visions of designing a tough championship links course, without disturbing the natural terrain and beauty of the Little Bay peninsula (par 72).

Today St. Michael's has evolved as one of Australia's few environmentally aware golf links by implementing specific programs aimed at protecting resources, flora and fauna. The objective is to reduce their carbon footprint, protect the endangered species of the region and to be responsible for the way in which they function as a golfing business.

Kurnell: Events

WilderQuest Bound For Botany Bay


Join the WilderQuest gang at Kamay Botany Bay National Park. You'll go back in time to London in 1820, where you'll be sentenced to life as a convict and transported to Botany Bay.

You'll play different roles - some are very colourful characters! You'll hear lots of stories. Join in a sing-a-long to raise your spirits on your long voyage. When you arrive at Botany Bay you'll take part in an absolutely wild 'convict escape' that takes you to a new environment. You'll find out about how the early settlers lacked bush survival skills, contrasted with the excellent bush skills of Sydney's Aboriginal People. Finally, you'll come back to the present. Convicts will be issued with a 'Ticket of Leave' for good behaviour, so they can return to their community as a free person.
