Beware of stingrays - Botany Bay (Sydney)

Beware of stingrays – Botany Bay (Sydney)

The net should keep out sharks, but to avoid stepping on an angry stingray you need to do the Stingray Shuffle. If you swim in the waters around Sydney, you’d better be careful.

(As an aside, the stretch of beach on the opposite shore is just along the coast from where Captain Cook first landed from HMS Endeavour in Botany Bay on 29 April 1770.)
