Cockatoo Island

Cockatoo Island is the largest island in Sydney Harbour, located at the junction of the Parramatta and Lane Cove Rivers. The island was originally heavily timbered in red gums which attracted many sulphur-crested cockatoos. This view is from the lower north shore suburb of Woolwich.


  1. Jim -- looks like a great place. Is it still a good area to see the birds?

  2. Sallie, the island became a prison and then a shipyard, so the trees were removed and the cockatoos disappeared a long time ago. The remnants of industry on the island only seem to attract seagulls these days.

  3. This is a good view of the island Jim.
