La Perouse

Our walking group recently visited La Perouse which is on the northern headland of Botany Bay.
  This was the starting point for our walk in Kamay Botany Bay National Park.

La Perouse was named after the French explorer who visited the area in 1788. He arrived at Botany Bay a week after The First Fleet from Britain arrived.

Bare Island Fort  was built in the 1880's and latter became a retirement home for war veterans. The island was named from Captain Cook's description of 'a small bare island'. Tours of the Fort are available, mostly on Sundays.

This was my first visit to La Perouse which is about 14km south of Sydney City. After our walk many of us enjoyed fish and chips  before catching one of the frequent buses back to the City.
