if you ever find yourself in sydney, i'd definitely try to make a trip out to cockatoo island. it's just a short ferry ride from the city, so you
get to enjoy the harbour by boat as well.
the island itself is really interesting. until a few years a go it was never open to the public. it has a rich history of convicts and ship
building, original buildings and huge warehouses still stand today.
you can even stay in one of the special tents that are set up on the island (seen in second top photo). cool huh?
