Owing to its breathtaking harbour views and distinctive heritage character, Cockatoo Island is a unique and inspirational backdrop for business meetings and conferences, including team-building, training, planning and brainstorming days.

Cockatoo Island’s Conference Centre, located in the Administration Building near the ferry wharf, can accommodate a total of 80 people across two meeting rooms and a conference theatre. Meanwhile, the Convict Precinct cinema is equipped with a projector, a five metre wide screen, surround sound and bean bag lounge chairs, making it a great informal space to screen training videos or presentations.
