About Us

The Friends of the Laperouse Museum is a community organisation dedicated to the preservation of the Bicentennial Gift from the Australian French community by way of the Laperouse Museum commemorating the voyage of Jean-François de Galaup Comte de Lapérouse. 
The Laperouse voyage of discovery aimed to complete the charting of the Pacific Ocean's lands commenced by Captain James Cook.

The Friends' office is located within the historic Cable Station complex that houses the Laperouse Museum. We are a key stakeholder and active member of Randwick Council's La Perouse Museum and Headland Trust - represented by our President Carol Abela.
