La Perouse Historical Walk is a 800m, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Botany Bay National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This walk primarily across open lawns offers views across Botany Bay while visiting historically significant landmarks. The side trip to the Bare Island Fortifications is well worth it with tours available on Sunday afternoons. However a walk across to the locked gate on Bare Island is still well worth the time – also there are steps at the far side of the bridge down onto attractive unfenced rock platforms. Both the historic tombstone and monument by the museum are worth a visit to contemplate our early explorers. Food beach and a children’s playground are available close to the end of this walk. A magnificent location with so much history.
