This multi-functional island has been used as a convict stockade, quarry, explosives store, police and fire station, boatyard, film set and concert venue. So imagine the history that awaits you! The best way to explore is via one of the guided tours on offer, but it's equally enthralling to stroll around this large island at your leisure.
Take in some interesting sites, such as the convict Bony Anderson's rock, the Queen's Magazine building, the harbour warden's mansion and scenes form the TV series 'The Water Rats'. For keen photographers opportunities abound as around every corner there is a new vista to delight and indulge in.
Loved by locals and tourists alike, Goat Island may not be home to many four legged friends, but with so much to see and do your time here will fly.
There are no cafe facilities on the island so it's a good idea to bring a snack and a drink, although many tours will provide lunch as part of the package.
