Cockatoo Island

Just a short ferry ride away from the Drummoyne wharf, Cockatoo Island sits within the beautiful Sydney Harbour and is a perfect choice for a quick getaway for the weekend. Embodying a long history dating back to the time of first settlement, the island has played an important role in the development of the country and is considered to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Now reopened as an urban waterfront destination, the island offers a multitude of attractions for tourists and locals alike.

Sit around a campfire and sleep under the stars and go camping—or glamping—on the island’s lush grounds. If you’re not a fan of sleeping outdoors, you can stay at the heritage houses or at one of the many apartments and pop-up hotel suites. For those interested in the island’s rich history, you can go on group or self-guided tours to learn more about Cockatoo Island’s colorful past. Or maybe just grab a blanket and set out for picnic at one of the many scenic spots and enjoy the stunning a view.

THE LAUGHING KOOKABURRA

Anyone driving along Victoria Road from the city could not have missed the new Laughing Kookaburra mural that now graces the North-west face of the building.

The mural is the handiwork of Dutch artist, Amok Island, who has developed such a fascination with Australian fauna and flora that he has now formed a base in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Amok Island draws his inspiration from the scientific illustrations that early naturalist’s once used for identification purposes. The theme of natural exploration and conservation is a strong and constant undercurrent of his artistic practice.

Bursting with beautiful colours, the warm cream and shades of browns contrast with the accents of blue and remind passer-bys of the rich, natural beauty of the Drummoyne environment.
