Located in First Nations countries on Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Trust’s destinations are known for their natural beauty. They also feature heritage-listed structures and other remnants from Australia’s layered history. For these reasons, they have significance on a national and international scale.
The Harbour Trust’s protected places include Cockatoo Island, North Head Sanctuary in Manly, Sub Base Platypus in North Sydney and Headland Park in Mosman. The agency also manages Woolwich Dock and Parklands, Macquarie Lightstation in Vaucluse, and the Former Marine Biological Station at Camp Cove.
The Harbour Trust’s vision includes making its protected places accessible to diverse audiences, amplifying their heritage values through storytelling and – through their conservation, remediation, and adaptive reuse – fostering a sense of place and belonging.
