Join the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust this Sunday 26 March for an open day at Cockatoo Island. Step inside Cockatoo Island’s beautifully-restored heritage houses and apartments, surrounded by landscaped gardens and views of Sydney Harbour.

Now used as holiday accommodation, the houses and apartments were built in the early 20th century during the expansion of the Cockatoo Island Dockyard. The Heritage Holiday Houses were once home to the Island’s Medical Officer and Engineering Manager; the Harbour View Apartments were formerly the residences of the Launch Driver and Coxswain; the Garden Apartment originally housed the dockyard’s Medical Officer’s Assistant and the Police; while the Firestation Studio near the Parramatta Wharf was added in 1973, to garage the Cockatoo Island fire truck.

The Sydney Harbour Federation Trust will also be making an exclusive special accommodation offer on the day.

When: Sunday 26 March 2017, 2:00-5:00pm.
Where: Info booth at Biloela Veranda, Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour (please pick up a map at the Visitor Centre first).
Cost: Free
