Cockatoo Island, walkway

This walkway along the northern shore of Cockatoo Island is punctuated by trees and benches. The rusty steel benches are a reminder of the shipbuilding history of Cockatoo Island and provide views of the Parramatta River and the nearby northern suburb of Woolwich.

  6. This is a well done and inviting walkway. I can't help but wonder what else is just around the bend there on Cockatoo Island!

  7. Julie, if you have at this photo of Cockatoo Island taken in January 2008, you can see the walkway and hill behind it under construction and only a couple of benches and very small trees there.

  11. It is great how all the islands appear to be getting facelifts and providing more recreational space for Sydneysiders.
