This island was originally a convict site where the convicts had built the convict barracks, guard houses and tunnels in the sandstone hills on the island. Later it was converted into a ship building yard which was operational till about 15 years back. Since then it has been declared as a heritage site for the convict barracks and sandstone tunnels. It's got a beautiful view and is very close to the main land. It's easily accessible via kayaks/canoes and private yatchs or boats. The island is now developed into a camping site with options of hiring tents or getting your own camping equipment. The camping area is right on the coast and gives a beautiful view of the river and city skyline. There is an open barbecue picnic area as well as docking area for private kayak/canoes which can also be used for some swimming and playing in water.
