Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Just to clarify, Recherche Bay, for Recherche Bay it certainly is, was where d'Entrecasteaux first landed in Australia at the beginning of his search for La Perouse. On their way up the NSW coast they stopped in at Botany Bay when the First Fleet was there before they moved on to Port Jackson.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

thanks Andrew, I enjoyed that. I didn't grow up in Australia so missed out on early Australian history at school. I learned more about the first fleet arrival in NSW

I think this one will be easy. No clues for 8 hrs, I am off to bed. zzzzz

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm only getting half a picture. Is that deliberate or is it my computer?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

it is kind of big picture, but as I said earlier, some issues on my mobile internet connections made things a mess..., now we are on business, sorry!
