Event description

Description

Discover the secrets of Chowder Bay, Garden Island & Cockatoo Island


Learn about our rich naval heritage and history while soaking up the sea-breeze and enjoying spectacular views of our city. The museum’s Curator of Royal Australian Navy maritime archaeology, Dr James Hunter, will guide you throughout this historical tour – taking in the spectacular Chowder Bay, as well as Garden and Cockatoo Islands.

At Chowder Bay, we’ll view the remnants of past military occupation and the heritage buildings that still exist on the precinct. Garden Island’s the next stop, exploring colonial fortifications, the unique rock carvings left by those on-board the First Fleet and the Royal Australian Navy Heritage Centre. Our final stop will be the UNESCO World Heritage listed Cockatoo Island, where we’ll learn about its changing role from World War I to the Cold War, while touring its dry docks and naval buildings.

Our cruises sell out quickly. Be sure to book early to secure your spot.
