Well, it is an interesting one because when Capt Arthur Phillip turned up to Australia to claim it after Capt Cook found it, Phillip found the French had found it too! In this spot the Froggies, under Admiral La Perouse, were perched so Phillip went to the other side of Botany Bay and stuck the flag there. Why the French just didnt tell him to bugger off is not so hard to understand as Phillip had 6 ships full of convicts and military. Basically the convict boats would have stunk the bay out.

In any event, Capt Phillip didnt like Botany Bay and headed a few miles north to Port Jackson which was named by Cook but Cookie never looked inside whats now called Sydney Harbour. Capt Phillip rolled into Sydney Harbour and pitched tent about 2 kms from where my house is.
He then built the Opera House and asked La Perouse to be the first singer.

Anyway, the photo is of the point called La Perouse... however the fort shown is not called La Perouse fort... its called something else. Lots of local girls have lost their virginity there.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Oh well I guess I should have asked for the name of the fort ?

La Perouse, looking south towards Bare Island Fort.

Too easy.

All yours Mark.

Yes, Fallard, well done! 79th Street Boat Basin, New York City.
Was a morning after a bit of rain and the timber had floated down.

Your go

You'll win if you're first to identify where it is.
