Take your classroom to Cockatoo Island and sleep under the stars.
As one of Australia’s most historically and culturally significant sites, Cockatoo Island offers the perfect destination for your school group.
The island’s history starts with Aboriginal occupation and encompasses many of the major landmarks of colonial and post-colonial Australian history. Its structures and relics tell the stories of convicts and orphans, of workers and wars, offering a unique opportunity for your students to interact with living history through our engaging primary and secondary programs.
As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Cockatoo Island presents a unique opportunity for students to engage with living history – and have fun – while still being in the heart of Australia’s largest city.
Our campground makes the learning experience even more fun. Cockatoo Island has all the amenities your school group needs — including hot showers,a large camp kitchen, ten BBQs, fridges, microwaves and access to boiling water.
