*PLEASE NOTE: Harbour Trust have kindly advised due to upcoming events, Cockatoo Island will be unavailable for filming between January – July 2020 next year. There are however, many other sites managed by the Harbour Trust that remain available during this time.* Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour was once a convict prison, then an industrial school for girls and finally Australia's biggest shipyard. It is the largest island in Sydney Harbour and is located near the Balmain peninsula. Today this surprising island is open to the public. Visitors can arrive by ferry and explore the island's fascinating heritage. Its brooding sandstone convict gaol has been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List, as well as the large dock and hand-carved storage silos built by the reluctant inhabitants.
