Description

In the heart of Port Jackson, this rugged 13-hectare island is as rich in history as it is in sandstone. Goat Island, once home to an explosives store and later a convict stockade, housed the Sydney Water Police and even acted as a movie set. What originally served as a destination for some of the biggest offenders in the nation (who were forced to work in the vast quarries) is now part of the National Park of Sydney Harbour.
