magnificent island lunch at the Marina Café & Bar with delights such as
beer battered fish and chips with homemade tartare sauce.



Since 1839, Cockatoo Island has had a colourful history of
European settlement:



From Convict Penal Colony and Sandstone Quarry, to Reform
Schools and Ship Building, this island has seen it all. There are many tales to
be told of the hardships endured during each phase of the island’s history.



Cruising from King St Wharf in Darling Harbour, enjoy a glass of
wine or a locally brewed beer whilst embarking on a journey of exploration as
we enter Cockatoo Island where all the excitement begins.



Once at the island you can take a self-guided 90 minute exploration
