Walk back in time at La Perouse Musuem

I went with a friend who is a friend of the Musuem. I found it to be a very interesting place and discovered a lot about the early days of the area I live that I did not know about

We spent about an hour looking through this two-storey museum. There's plenty of interesting things to see, including information about the French navigator Lapérouse, Aboriginal stories and also some info on the marine life in the waters around La Perouse. The staff member working was welcoming and friendly and it only costs a gold coin to get in. This is... More

Beauty Sea and neighboring islands. The views and beautiful scenery. You can store pictures Multiple angles Which typically takes a team of cameramen filming Pre-wedding at this very well. The sky will make a beautiful picture out.

Warning; I am a museum tragic. I love 'em. This one is of course unique and yet covers a diverse suite of historical and personal narratives.

Went La Perouse to see the beach where mission impossible 2 were shooting. It was a hot day. But near the beach the cool breeze made our visit easy. The museum is a great addition. My daughter learnt the history. We had short of time, thought it wouldn't possible but we did the mission impossible, possible.
