Located in the heart of Sydney Harbour on the land of the Wallumedegal, Wangal, Cammeraygal and Gadigal Peoples, Cockatoo Island is a treasure trove of rich history and natural beauty.
Despite being just a short ferry ride from Circular Quay, Barangaroo and the Parramatta River, this unique local attraction feels a world away from the fast pace of the city. The slower culture invites visitors to embrace their surroundings and soak up the unique charm of the site, right from the very first moment they arrive. If you have the luxury of your own boat, private vessels may also be moored on the island’s southern apron.
As a source of intrigue and inspiration, popular attractions include the waterfront cafes, guided history and paranormal tours, and exciting seasonal events. While you’re there, why not make a day of it by packing a picnic lunch and enjoy your food with a view from the Biloela Lawn? The unspoilt vistas are simply incomparable.
