Visiting Cockatoo Island
Visiting Cockatoo Island rekindles your sense of adventure. Be it via a short ferry ride from the city, or across open water on a kayak, arriving on Cockatoo Island opens a world of possibilities. Follow your passion for maritime or convict history, or take in the island's top attractions on one of our self-guided journeys.
Take an audio tour if you really want to get under the skin of Cockatoo Island. Balance it with a spot of lunch at the island cafe, or pack a picnic and watch the world go by from a million dollar vantage point along the way.
For those wanting more try a game of tennis or a quick dip followed by a drink at The Island Bar. There's a lot to do on Cockatoo Island and it's always changing. We recommend you come back a few times to fully experience all that is on offer.
