"Voyage In Search Of La Perouse" or "Relation du Voyage à la Recherche de la Pérouse" is an 1800-account of the 1791-1793 expedition to Australasia. The expedition was sent in search of La Pérouse, a French naval officer and explorer who disappeared in the region in 1788. Although unsuccessful in reaching its aim, the expedition resulted in numerous discoveries, published in the two volumes. The author, Jacques Labillardière, a French botanist on the voyage, collected and described the continent's flora. The work contains some of the earliest descriptions of Australian flora and fauna and an account of the indigenous peoples of Tasmania.
