La Perouse, Bare Island

This view of Bare Island is from the eastern suburb of La Perouse. The island is located at the mouth of Botany Bay and is linked by a wooden bridge. It features a historic military fort and tunnels built in 1885 to protect Sydney from sea attack when it was feared an invasion from Russia was imminent.

  1. Do tourists go across that bridge and inspect the historical fort and tunnels? I would love to.

    I too love the blue sea in your photo.
