We really loved our visit to one unusual camping destination: Cockatoo Island, Sydney, New South Wales.
Where else can you camp beside Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge views? And an old convict jail? There was even a cool art exhibition when we visited.
Surrounded by lush gardens with sweeping views, Cockatoo Island’s waterfront campground let’s you relax under the stars, in the heart of the world’s best harbour.
Visitors can park at Woolwich and take a short one-stop ferry to the island. Instead of your RV, choose from five options, catering for a range of budgets, group sizes, and occasions.
Cockatoo Island is a former convict penal establishment and naval shipyard managed by the Harbour Trust. Explore with a tour, it was excellent.
Visitors can enjoy waterfront cafes and picnic spots as well as guided history and paranormal tours, delving into the island’s layered history and discovering iconic landmarks.
Cockatoo Island is fascinating! When we were there, we explored the old naval shipyard and convict Mess Hall, Barracks, Guardhouse, Military Officers Quarters and Solitary Confinement Cells. Take a convict precinct tour.
Please note, alcohol is not permitted to be brought onto the island, but can be purchased at the two licensed venues.
Prices start at $++, no pets allowed. You can find this tent and glamping site in the CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App.
