Botany Name Origin
Botany is named after the bay, which was named for the many exotic plants botanist Sir Joseph Banks collected there in 1770.
Botany Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, with land originally planned to be used for agricultural purposes. However, the area quickly became an industrial area. Growth took place during the mid to late 1800s. Port Botany was established in 1930, and expanded in the 1970s. Residential growth resumed during the post-war period. The population increased substantially from the mid 1990s as new dwellings were added to the area, particularly medium and high density housing on sites that were formerly used for industry.
Major features of the area include the northern part of Port Botany (Patrick Container Terminal), Botany Aquatic Centre, Botany Golf Club, Sir Joseph Banks Park, Sir Joseph Banks Pleasure Gardens, Arthur Park, Booralee Park, Garnet Jackson Reserve, Morgan Street Reserve, Ocean Bush Park, Wall Reserve, Foreshore Beach, Mill Stream Lookout, various industrial and business parks and several schools.
