Cockatoo IslandPosted on Aug 09, 2019
If you want to explore the historic landmarks in Darling Harbour, then there is no better place than Cockatoo Island. The island is in the heart of Sydney Harbour and it’s just a short ferry ride from the Central Business District. Popular called ‘Wareahman’ by the Aboriginal people of the region, it’s a place that was a convict penal establishment & ship dockyard before but has presently emerged as a great venue for arts & entertainment. It has hosted a lot of events like the biggest visual arts event in Australia, live performances by Lorde & Justin, the Biennale of Sydney and many more. It has a lot of things to offer throughout the year, which include heritage accommodation, tours for different ages, waterfront campground, serene picnic spots with spectacular Harbour views and licensed cafes such as Marina Cafe & Bar and Societe Overboard. So, when you are in Sydney Darling Harbour, definitely don’t miss out this spot from your must-visit list.
