Fort Denison

Fort Denison

Fort Denison is the unmistakable little island with an old style fort. It is located in the main shipping channel of Sydney Harbour. Unlike other islands in the harbour, Fort Denison was designed for military uses in the 19th century. It was originally used as a prison for convicts who re-offended in colonial times. The fort structure you see today, known as the Martello Tower, was built as a military facility in by the British government. It was completed in 1857 and built with local Sydney sandstone.


These days the island is an automated navigation facility. Onshore facilities include a museum, a modern restaurant, and authentic local sandstone and outdoor recreation areas. Fort Denison is a very popular picnic and tour destination, with stunning harbour views across the harbour and foreshore.

New Years Eve Testimonial
A very big Thank You for your fantastic service and for providing us an unforgettable experience of NYE on the harbour. Your hospitality and the boat position watching the fireworks really brought this experience to a new level, having previously experienced NYE on the harbour. The 1.5 hour cruising amongst the super boats/yachts was so amazing. My interstate guests were so happy and have said it was an unforgettable amazing experience on the harbour.
