While you wonder around CBD in Sydney, it’s hard to imagine, that just few minutes away by ferry you can be on an island, that’s almost uninhabited. I am talking about Cockatoo Island, where you can get to by ferry from Circular Quay. This place is almost like San Francisco’s Alcatraz and has a rich history itself. It used to be a prison, then they built ships there, and troubled children found home there as well. Nowadays it’s a place with awesome exhibitions from time to time. It’s worth visiting if you like to hang around old hangars and buildings. I do, and I spent a whole day over there. Sunset from Island’s perspective was beautiful.
