La Perouse has witnessed many events significant in our National History – from Indigenous Australians to the arrival of James Cook, the First Fleet and the Expedition of Laperouse. The Rum Trade flourished with the arrival of the Second Fleet and La Perouse became the first Customs Outpost in Australia.
Later the headland would provide communication between Australia and NZ and later the fear of enemy attack saw the development of defences to protect important local infrastructure. But, there is a lot more!
Join a walk with Committee member Greg Bond to view the landscape and colonial structures that reflect a diverse local history on this 191st Anniversary of the foundation of the Laperouse Monument by the Baron de Bougainville.
