Cockatoo Island Historic Federation Houses

Two charming Federation houses on Cockatoo Island are the perfect location for a Sydney get-away. Enjoy harbour views and island living in beautifully restored rooms fitted out with modern conveniences.

Each four bedroom house is now available for short-term letting, perfect as a peaceful and atmospheric retreat from city life and just a quick hop from Circular Quay. The houses are completely self-contained with linen supplied and both include a barbecue and an outdoor table setting. Perched on the upper plateau in a leafy part of the island, they are surrounded by heritage gardens and have stunning views of the harbour at sunrise and sunset.

The houses were once home to Cockatoo Island's medical officer and engineering manager when the island was a busy shipyard.

You will need to plan your arrival and departure in accordance with ferry timetables, or you can catch a water taxi to the island.
