Haunting La Perouse

<B>La Perouse (20km) south of the City. Is a very haunting place. Captain James Cook landed in Botany Bay (Near La perouse) in 1770. There is also a small fort and a prison on BARE ISLAND.

I have experienced so many hauntings in La Perouse, theres a huge cemetery and its an eery place, and fairly industrailized.
Though this area has little gems of Special beaches, even nudie beaches, aside from its Rich History- The Botany Bay/ La Perouse area has 2 pretty national parks, great Museums, a layed back atmosphere too.

LA PErouse Museum

A lovely looking Building, with a look-out to Bare Island. An Island that is simply a Prizon (like Alcatraz). Though not as Huge. The haunting past of This Prison is still talked about today.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Good For Ghost Hunts, Nice Fish/Chips Seafood, Secluded Clear Beaches, Rich Aboriginal Culture, First Landing Site Of White Man 230 years ago.
  • Cons:Heavily Industrialized, Little Bay Hospital ( Terribly Scary ), Excessive Amounts Of Police, Huge Sary Cemetery.
  • In a nutshell:La Perouse and its surrounds in all is a good area with a rich History, yet i warn it is very haunted. Little Bay has a GREAT beach, though with it is a closed down hospital, with a hidden cemetery, and many myths in the area.
