The best way to get to Cockatoo Island is on our chartered ferry. Join other travellers and arrive in style. You’ll be treated to a special welcoming as you are escorted underground to the conference. We’ve planned some pretty crazy stuff that will be well worth the early start.
If coming via train, get off at Wynard Station and take the Wynard Walk down to Barangaroo. Once you hit the water, TURN LEFT until you hit Captain Cook Ferry Terminal (about 300 metres).
