This rocky 13-hectare island in the heart of Port Jackson is as rich in history as it is in sandstone. Once home to an explosives store and later a convict stockade, Goat Island has housed the Sydney Water Police and even served as a film set. What ...

i bought the tour as a present for my husband for his birthday and we had a wonderful day. The tour guide (I can't remember his name) was excellent and made the history of Goat Island come alive. The food was better than my expectations and cruising around the Harbour on a lovely autumn day whilst we had lunch was a perfect experience .

My Sister Dee and I have to say our experience of the Sydney Harbour Cruise and Goat Island Walking Tour was most enjoyable. The Captain of the boat, Guides and Bar staff were great. The food and drinks on the Island along with the guided tour was excellent. Money well spent. Thank you!!!

Viator has done it again. I have used them quite often and have never been let down and this trip to Goat Island was no exception. The weather was great, the ferry trip most pleasant, especially the round the harbour tour on the way back and the meal tasty and plentifull. It was a pleasant unhurried walk and our guide was cheerfull, informative and obliging to all ages and abilities, including as two quite young grandchildren. The history of the Island was well narrated and the views were superb. I would reccomend this tour to any visitors to Australia, if only for the views, as well as Sydneysiders just wanting to catch up on the history of the early settlement of Sydney Harbour. A most enjoyable experience.

Was a fabulous experience, however, we left late which meant we overlapped with following tour and also made our tour of Goat Isl. shorter and hurried. Aslo I was at the end of the que and there was no food left eg potato salad etc! When I enquired I was told "Sorry we don't have any more!" Disappointing. The Harbour Cruise was wonderful and a glass of champagne made it better.
