Sydney Harbour Sydney
New South Wales
Off-limits for more than one hundred years, Cockatoo Island welcomes you to a new chapter in its long and illustrious story. Retaining all its character and heritage from decades of human endeavour by convicts and shipbuilders alike, Cockatoo Island has opened its doors to all, with a mission to re-energise history. Now a place to escape the everyday, a canvas for creatives and cultural events, the world's first urban waterfront campground, home to a conference centre, businesses and holiday accommodation, Cockatoo Island has undergone a renaissance in every sense of the word.
In a commanding position, at the meeting of three waterways, with vistas to all quarters, Cockatoo Island is Sydney Harbour's largest and most impressive island, yet only minutes by ferry from Circular Quay.
