Please be mindful that Cockatoo Island’s seagulls are currently in nesting season and can become aggressive if approached.  

Although we have taken steps to minimise the inconvenience for visitors, including accommodation guests, we encourage people to keep their distance where possible. As the seagulls are very noisy this season, including during the night time, we are providing all campers with ear plugs to ensure a sounder sleep during their stay. We also encourage guests to report any concerns directly to the accommodation team.
