ⓘ Esperance Bay

Esperance Bay is a bay on the south coast of Western Australia. Nominally located at 33°51′25″S 121°55′13″E, it is the site of the town of Esperance.

The bay was discovered on 9 December 1792 by a French expedition under Bruni dEntrecasteaux, which sailed in search of the lost expedition of Jean-François de Galaup, comte de Laperouse. Stormy weather had blown the ships into hazardous waters surrounded by islands, but acting ensign Jacques-Bertrand Le Grand sighted a navigable passage and a somewhat sheltered anchorage, providing what dEntrecasteaux regarded as a "miraculous" escape from being wrecked. Ship botanist Jacques Labillardiere was in favour of naming the bay after Le Grand, and indeed he refers to the bay on his specimen slips as "Baie Le Grand", but in the end dEntrecasteaux decided to name the bay after one of his ships, the Esperance. The cape on the eastern side of the bay was named Cape Le Grand in Le Grands honour.
