New Fancy ramps on Botany Bay. Not located on current Google Earth, they are on Foreshore Road, away from the shipping terminal, half way to the runway.
The Good:
Proper pontoons, reasonable parking, security service, looks like free parking for the moment. Good on-water "waiting bays".

The Bad
Lots of power boats, the need for a security service says something, narrow channel to get to main part of Bay. The Bay itself is pretty exposed, and any anchorage is vulnerable to wind change. I could see why Capt Arthur Phillip decided to go for Port Jackson (Sydney) instead.
