I guess that means no clues

I believe that the missing men referred to are Jean-François de Galaup, comte de Lapérouse and his men sailing on La Boussole and L'Astrolabe.

On 20 January 1788, the First Fleet arrived in Botany Bay. The British believed they were completely isloated from any other European presence. Just four days later however, Philip Gidley King recorded in his journal:

'...two Strange Ships were seen standing in the Bay ... we judged them to be the two Ships under the orders of Monsieur de la perouse.'

La Perouse's ships sailed out of Botany Bay in March 1788. The British lookout on South Head saw them leave. This was probably the last time the French expedition was seen by Europeans.

In 1791, when La Perouse had not returned to France or made any contact by dispatch, the French government sent out a search party. It was commanded by Rear Admiral Joseph Antoine Bruni d'Entrecasteaux and consisted of two ships, Recherche and Esperance.

I guess we are looking for the location where this search party landed.

Despite the extensive search carried out by d'Entrecasteaux, he failed to find any trace of the missing French ships.
I am going for Recherche Bay, Tasmania.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

La Peruse is a nice idea.

I remember reading Tench's book and dont remember anyone going missing till the Rushcutters bay incident. But it was a long time ago... that I read the book

You people are amazing! You gave the names of the ships, and there is the name of the place Esperance, but don't know if the city is in the exact place where the ship Esperance landed. The picture in contest doesn't look like open ocean coast, but didn't find anything alike.

It cant be open coast as it would have a lot of wave action. Shoould be easy to work out as it must be somewhere from Port Hacking to Port Jackson. They didnt go far afield in 1788.

Yes, still difficult to find the exact place, can be an inlet picture
Has to be there where Esperance shipe landed, I can see is a very difficult place to sail without aids...
let's wait and see.

Sorry guys, been away for the weekend.. Andrew's off as well, but he's left us the answer and LaurenceU has nailed it. And so on to you, LU!
