Cruwee Cove Beach would have to be the least known beach of the Eastern Suburbs and also one of the hardest to get to.
Drive to the NSW Golf Club then turn left to go out towards the helicopter landing strip where you will find a small car park, and follow the path toward Cape Banks.
Oh, one more thing to remember you also have to walk part way through the Golf Course so stay on the track.
If you’re lucky, you could see Whales
Remember there are no amenities, so make sure you take food and water.
Cruwee Cove Beach it’s a great to snorkel & check out the remains of the shipwrecked SS Minmi
The SS Minmi was built in Glasgow, Scotland in 1927. She was 75 metres long and displaced 1,455 tons. The Minmi was a collier, carrying coal from Newcastle to Melbourne and returning empty.
On 8 May 1937 At 10 pm they were off Botany Bay in heavy seas and dense fog, and shortly after the ship struck the outside of Cape Banks, the outer northern headland of Botany Bay.
Soldiers at the nearby Cape Banks Artillery Garrison were awoken by the sound of escaping steam and saw the ship hard on the rocks. Frederick Boulton, the ship’s cook, collapsed and died of a heart attack soon after the ship struck the rocks. The rest of the crew more than 20 were stranded on the vessel due to the heavy seas.
Cruwee Cove: Named after an Aboriginal who, during early colonial times, claimed to have sighted James Cook’s arrival at Botany Bay in 1770.
