Information

French navigator and explorer Antoine Raymond Joseph de Bruni, chevalier d'Entrecasteaux spent several weeks surveying the area that he named Recherche Bay at the southern end of the channel that runs north to the west of Bruny Island and named in his honour.

During his stay he came ashore to replenish his water supplies, which he did by accessing a small stream near the location of the sign. The sign is clearly visible, on the left as you approach cockle creek.
