Cockatoo Island has changed dramatically from the uninhabited rocky island it was when Europeans arrived. Reshaped, levelled, cleared and used for a range of social and industrial purposes, the island is now a historic landmark, administered by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, and open to the public.
