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. So, maybe like me, you'll happily toddle around any number of rooms filled with facts, and wish you could commit all to memory, especially so that you can win the next Trivia Comp. Okay,... More

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.

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!

It is great that this house is being maintained in some way and it shows some interesting things from the area. I was disappointed there wasn't more about the Aborginal heritage of the area given this was the place of first contact...

His observations were sent back to Europe from Botany Bay by returning first fleet vessels and were converted into charts and an atlas printed from etched plates. The plates were recently rediscovered and a limited number of impressions were... More

A static display of historical items. Interesting yet predictable. A counterpoint to the natural area surrounding it.
