About Sutherland Dock

Sutherland Dock on Cockatoo Island is one of the oldest and largest graving docks in the world. Established in the late 19th century, it exemplifies the engineering prowess of the era and Cockatoo Island’s significance in the shipbuilding industry.

Today, it stands as a monument to the maritime heritage that has been instrumental in shaping Sydney's identity.

Best Time/Season to Visit:
The dock is best visited during the dry months, when the likelihood of lower tides and clearer weather makes for a safer and more comprehensive tour.
