Bare Island

From Congwong Beach

Bare Island is connected by a footbridge to the suburb of La Perouse in South east Sydney. The historic military fort and tunnels can only be visited by guided tour. 

The bay at the bottom of the picture is where the whales from yesterdays post were.

Bare Island was part of the traditional land of the Gweagal and Kameygal Aboriginal tribes. In 1770, it was described as ‘a small bare island’ by early explorer, Lieutenant James Cook.

Looking  west over Bare Is and Botany Bay from Henry Head.
