Wander a World Heritage island
Cockatoo Island, which lies just west of the Harbour Bridge, is an explorer’s pick ’n’ mix. You can dive into our Indigenous and convict history with an audio tour or spend hours being captivated by the artworks dotted across the island as part of the 22nd Biennale of Sydney (until 6 September). You can snuggle down in a tent or cosy up in one of the heated heritage accommodations (apartments 23A, B and C have the best bridge views).
