We are a family with children ages 13, 11 and 6. We live in Sydney but had never been to Cockatoo Island. We finally took the plunge in January and were so impressed. Its five star camping - basically you arrive to a good quality erected tent with airmattresses and chairs. You just bring your sleeping bag (not necessary in summer), pillow and esky. We had a lovely lunch at the cafe when we arrived. Bought a bottle of wine for dinner. Spent the afternoon touring the island - there is so much history and you are pretty much allowed free reign. We also did some swimming in the harbour. We were really impressed with the lovely bbq area and shower/toilet block. Its as close to 5 star camping as you get. My only gripe was the uncomfortable air mattress - buts that probably me being a princess, and novice camper. Its an absolute must-do whether you live in Sydney or are visiting. And its so cheap - we were looking at other options on the harbour and it was minimum $500 per night - this was $180 for 2 tents with all the equipment.
