Port Botany Name Origin
Cook's journals first referred to the bay as Sting Rays' Harbour, then later Botanist Bay and finally both these names were crossed out and replaced with Botany Bay. The suburb name comes from the bay it stands on.
Port Botany Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, with land used mainly for farming. Industrial and residential growth took place during the late 1800s and into the early 1900s. The Eastlakes were a water source for Sydney during the late 1800s. Port Botany was established in 1930, and expanded in the 1970s. Significant residential growth took place during the post-war period, with much high density development from the 1960s. The population generally increased 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.
