    Join us for a special day of family fun amongst the spectacular shipyards of historic Cockatoo Island! 

    Make creative crafts, dress up in costume and have your face painted as we salute to all things navy and nautical.  

    Spy up periscopes and take the hoop- helm in interactive circus performances. Enjoy live music, storytelling and theatrical tours across the island. Join in spectacular bubble art making, marvel at steam crane demonstrations, take a harbour cruise on a historic vessel and much more.  

    It’s a whole day of fun for the whole family.
