Known to Sydney’s First Nations Peoples as Wareamah, Cockatoo Island is a great place for primary and high school classes to extend their understanding of Australian history. As your students explore historical buildings and spaces with a specialist education guide, they will have opportunities to consider how the past has influenced the present.
Critically, our 90-minute education programs for Stages 1 to 5 meet NSW Syllabus and Australian Curriculum Outcomes. Plus, our campground is available for bookings by school, scout and youth groups.
Looking for a program during the school holidays? Experience the sights and sounds of Cockatoo Island with our engaging and educational vacation care program, suitable for children in years 3 to 6.
Planning a self-guided excursion? Please register your scheduled visit with us so staff, including rangers, can ensure your group has a safe and enjoyable experience.
