Bare Island Walk is a 900m, grade 2 Return hike located in Botany Bay National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This walk to Bare Island is thoroughly recommended. Bare Island is a small island which is accessed via a timber bridge. The island was originally fortified to prevent foreign invasion however it has also been a retirement home and is now a museum and tourist attraction (managed by NSW Parks and Wildlife Service). A visit to the nearby La Perouse Museum is a great addition to this walk and a good place organise a tour of Bare Island (available on Sunday afternoons).
