Question 3:  What is the connection between the Astrolabe Reef and Welcome Bay’s  D’Urville Way ?

Yes, some of the questions are multi choice and some do require an answer, but, if you’re a quiz junkie, interested in things French and looking for a fun evening served with coffee and a delicious dessert, then come along to our annual Bastille Day French Quiz to be held a day later this year on Monday July 15th. Questions are in English but for those who wish to self test their knowledge of the French language, there’s a French version as well.  However, very sorry, still no prizes of trips to Paris or Noumea.
