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 Tour of Cockatoo Island. Visit the Marina Café & Bar and choose from a delicious and freshly prepared lunch. Relax with a scenic return to mainland cruise where you will disembark from King Street Wharf Darling Harbour, arriving back at 4:00pm (approx.)

Lunch choices are:

• Beer battered fish & chips w homemade tartare sauce,
• Panko crumbed chicken breast and chips w homemade tomato relish
• Lemon and herb chargrilled chicken wrap with a rocket and feta salad
• Wagyu burger, w smoked bacon, cheese, rocket and a homemade chutney, served with fries
