Cockatoo Island is Sydney’s largest island and forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage List, along with 10 other historic sites that together form the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage Property. As a result of its pivotal role in Australia’s convict and defence history, it retains an incredible legacy of over 80 colonial and industrial assets including buildings, cranes, docks and slipways.

Entry is free and unticketed.
