Managed by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, Cockatoo Island is a World-Heritage-listed island in the middle of Sydney Harbour.
Retaining all its character from decades of human endeavour by convicts and shipbuilders alike, Cockatoo Island is open to the public daily, offering major events, exhibitions, tours, venue hire, accommodation including the world’s first urban waterfront campground, a waterfront bar (The Island Bar) and licensed kiosk (The Canteen).
A major venue of the Biennale of Sydney since 2008, Cockatoo Island hosts the 18th Biennale of Sydney across both Upper and Lower Island. Spend a few hours or the day exploring the exhibition at this wonderful location. Just 20 minutes by ferry from Circular Quay.
Cockatoo Island is now an emerging cultural destination in Sydney. In the past decade, the Harbour Trust has developed programs and events which enrich the city with art exhibitions, major music events and a film festival.
Cockatoo Island is one of the magnificent sites managed by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, a self funding agency responsible for the vision planning and management of Sydney Harbour sites including: Cockatoo Island and Snapper Island in Sydney Harbour, Woolwich Dock and Parklands, HMAS Platypus in Neutral Bay, Headland Park and Chowder Bay in Mosman, North Head Sanctuary in Manly, Marine Biological Station in Watsons Bay and Macquarie Lightstation in Vaucluse.
