Clark Island, Sydney Harbour

In 2010, we took advantage of the Island Hopping experience on Sydney Harbour to explore several of the islands that are dotted around the bays & coves.
Normally, these islands are only open for special events or by appointment.


Our last stop was Clark Island.
It lies just off Darling Point and is less than a hectare in size.

Clark Island is named after Lieutenant Ralph Clark.
He arrived in Sydney in 1788 as part of the First Fleeet.
He cultivated the island as a garden from 1789.

Clark Island is now a unique picnic & wedding photo shot destination.
Reservations to visit the island are essential.

Next week: Shark Island

  3. I am enjoying this series as we saw all of these islands last year in the harbour but didn't stop to visit any of them. Looking forward to seeing Shark island next.

  5. Thank you for sharing your island adventure. What a lovely destination! All your photos are beautiful, but my favorite shows a path lined with rocks and a bridge in the background. I want to be there! My Saturday Snapshot post features WALLA WALLA, WA.
