The idea of camping in Sydney Harbour in summertime has a magic & romance. I thought I would make the most of the opportunity to do just that whilst photographing for my latest book, Gypsy on Cockatoo Island.
On a Thursday night, instead of catching the ferry back to the mainland we headed to the cluster of tents located on the Western side of the island. I was there for a week with my core crew and we took over 4 tents to make our home for the night.
Everything you need for some serious glamping is on Cockatoo Island: cooking, bathing, tennis court and bar (haha). If camping isn’t your style there are a few houses & even residences to choose from. Ah, to waking up at dawn & walking around freely as the sun rises over the Harbour Bridge. This is something everyone should do - it is magnificent.
