Bare Island (La Perouse)

As an option, we can visit Bare Island on our Grand Pacific Drive Tour.

Bare Island is an islet within Botany Bay in Sydney. Containing fortification facilities, Bare Island is listed on the New South Wales State Heritage Register and is significant as an almost completely intact example of late nineteenth century coastal defence technology.

The waters around Bare Island are very popular with snorkelers and SCUBA divers, as the reefs that stretch around the island are home to Australia’s most colourful marine animals. Big belly sea horse, sea dragons, pygmy pipe horse, red indian fish as well as sharks.

Bare Island was featured in Mission Impossible II and East West 101.
