Cockatoo Island. What a weird name. But then this is Australia so I should have expected it hah. Getting to the island is really easy, just take the ferry from Circular Quay. Next time I come back I will probably take the ferry and hop on to all the islands. Yes there’s actually a lot of islands around Sydney.
The reason why I chose Cockatoo Island (http://www.cockatooisland.gov.au/) is because it’s designed as a UNESCO site. Also the name was unique. And also because it used to be a convict penal establishment. aka prison, so why not visit it.
Got there, and yes it was a small island. However, I also saw a lot of people making camp there, apparently you can actually stay at this island overnight, I guess to star gaze? That’s a good idea, I should try it one day. Walked around the island and took some interesting photos, I am trying to get into taking pictures of random objects. I don’t know, maybe a new hobby of mine?
I’ll probably upload it more onto Instagram than here, but whatever. Admission is free, so I don’t see why you should not visit it if you have already done all the other touristy things in Sydney.
Although the island is no longer used as a convict establishment (obviously), it is a host to a lot of events throughout the year. Guess it be pretty cool to host an event that’s off the mainland!
