Description

For history buffs, what is now a famous destination once served as a defensive facility that watched over the bay. Located northeast of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Fort Denison Island was the scene of some of the most gruesome crimes against convicted felons.
Travelers will walk around the grounds of this newly restored island today and see the gibbet where prisoners have been hanged.
