Bare Island Walk

A 30 mins, 870m Return walk | Grade 2/6

A wonderful and easy way to explore the beautiful and historic tip of La Perouse. Bare Island is a small island which you can walk to across a large timber bridge. The island was originally fortified to prevent foreign invasion however it has also been a retirement home and is now a museum and tourist attraction managed by NSW Parks and Wildlife Service. The main part of the island is locked but you can book a tour on Sundays. There is also a set of steps at the end of the bridge to get access to the rock platform of the island. Make a day of it by enjoying the local cafe beaches and other museums in the area.
