Owner description: One of several tiny islands in Sydney Harbor, Shark Island is known for its lovely beaches with great surfing, bodyboarding, swimming and fishing. It's also a perfect place for a relaxing picnic lunch.

A small island in beautiful Sydney Harbour, the perfect place to escape the city, relax and unwind with a picnic lunch. Catch a ferry from Circular Quay

Shark Island, right in the middle of Sydney Harbour, is such an exciting place to take a group of kids. They can run wild on the tiny island and use their imaginations, pretending they are the first inhabitants in Sydney watching all the activity on the Harbour around them. A great spot for a picnic lunch. In the past they used to operate live performances (plays) for kids on the island. This is an ideal outdoor theatre venue.

What a wonderful treat to have the opportunity to travel to Sydney this summer (winter in Australia) and what joy, on a beautifully clear day, to have occasion to take the short ferry ride to Shark Island! The tiny beaches are perfect to lounge on, even during the winter months, and take in the magnificent view of the mainland. The often-rugged shoreline is fairly easy to navigate. For those who wish to stay in the center of the island, a variety of trees offer shade. Rainbow lorikeets are prevalent, with their bright flashes of color. Whether one chooses to enjoy a picnic lunch on the island or simply goes there for a brief escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, I think you will find the trip to Shark Island to be one that will make lasting memories.
