Cockatoo Island, Sydney

Recently, my mum and I visited Cockatoo Island. The island is located in Sydney and is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Historically, Cockatoo Island was a place where convicts had been sent.  Now it is a fun place to visit, where visitors can indulge in the breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour, ‘glamp’ and view exhibitions.

It is a great ferry ride to Cockatoo Island, it roughly took us twenty minutes on the express ferry from Circular Quay. Whilst on the ferry, we saw many wonderful Sydney landmarks, such as the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. 

As soon as we arrived, we went on the hunt for food. We sat on lounging chairs and listened to some nice tunes. We thoroughly enjoyed pizza and cocktails whilst we admired the lovely view.

Overall, it was an enjoyable day!

  2. I was reading about an art gallery there, was really impressed with it.
