  • Address: Shark Island
  • Hours: Daily
Now named for its shape and the image it brings to mind, Shark Island was once referred to as “Boambilly” by Australia’s aboriginal people. The island was previously the site of an animal quarantine and naval depot, but today travelers flock to its shores for recreation.

Settle in under shady trees and enjoy one of the island’s many well-kept picnic sites, or explore the rocky passes and handmade grottos along Shark Island’s beaches.

Practical Info

The Matilda Shark Island Ferry costs less than $20 for a roundtrip ticket, which also includes the Sydney Harbour National Park landing fee. The area is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily and from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. during daylight saving time.
