A very good museum located on the La Peruse headland. La Peruse was similar in many respects to Captain Cook. The museum contains many artifacts and information regading his voyage. Additionally the museum is located in a very scenic area with the bonus of having some fine restaurants in the vicinity. Well worth visiting!
