Cockatoo Island Camping


Check into Cockatoo Island’s waterfront campground for unbeatable views of Sydney Harbour as well as access to scenic picnic spots, Barbecue facilities and licensed cafés. Whether you’re a tourist or a local looking for a unique staycation, Cockatoo Island’s campground represents an opportunity to spend a night (or longer) under the stars in the heart of Sydney Harbour.

There are multiple options, catering for a range of budgets, group sizes and occasions, including romantic getaways and family vacations. If you’re a seasoned camper, or on a budget, you can bring and pitch your own tent or swag. Alternatively, for a hassle-free stay, you can arrange a pre-erected tent.

Looking to combine your love of the Great Outdoors with your desire for homely comforts? You’re in luck – Cockatoo Island offers three Deluxe Camping packages, each of which includes a pre-furnished tent and Appelles Apothecary toiletries. There’s even an opportunity to camp directly on the waterfront, enabling you to watch the sun set and rise on Sydney Harbour.

All campers have access to toilets, hot showers and a communal kitchen with sheltered facilities. These include barbecues, boiling water, fridges, microwaves, a vending machine and seating.
