History Of La Perouse

La Perouse is one of the first settlement areas in Australian history. La Perouse named after the French navigator Jean-François de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse (1741–88).

When France joined the American war (1780) La Pérouse distinguish himself as a naval commander.

In 1783 France wanted to send an oceanographer to South Pacific, inspired by Captain James Cook’s Pacific expedition. King Louis XVI planned the itinerary & commissioned La Pérouse to lead the fleet. (You will find a copy La Pérouse’s itinerary in the Rouen Municipal Library, France). On 1 August 1785, La Pérouse left on a scientific voyage with Astrolabe and Boussole.

In Dec 1787 La Pérouse lost Paul Antoine Fleuriot de Langle, commander of Astrolabe and 11 men. The party from L’Astrolabe were seeking water when they attacked by natives & killed in the Navigator Islands (Samoa).

La Pérouse left without taking any reprisals & sailed through the Pacific Islands to Norfolk Island, then on to Botany Bay.

The British sighted La Pérouse’s off the coast on 24 January 1788 but bad weather prevented his entering the bay for two days.

Astrolabe and Boussole arrived off Botany Bay just six days after Captain Arthur Phillip (1738–1814) had anchored west of Bare Island.

By then Governor Arthur Phillip had sailed on to Port Jackson, but John Hunter remained with the Sirius and, and assisted La Pérouse to anchor.
