Fort Denison Island, Sydney

(3.9/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Located on an island in Sydney Harbour, Fort Denison Island once serves as a defensive facility for Syndey Harbour and colonial prison. These days it offers a museum and, with 360-degree views of the Sydney Harbour, a fine place to enjoy a picnic. Head into the fort's sandstone Martello Tower to see a collection of colonial artifacts. If you plan to take a Hop-On Hop-Off cruise, see which of the boats stop at the fort. Before you head to Sydney, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Sydney tour planner, to make sure you see all that Sydney has to offer, including Fort Denison Island.
