ABOUT GOAT ISLAND

Known as Me-mei by the local Cadigal people, Goat Island was once inhabited by Bennelong and Barangaroo.

Since European settlement, it has played an important and fascinating role in the development of Sydney’s cityscape. During the 1800’s, the island was ‘home’ to convict work gangs as well as a gunpowder storage depot.  The Queen’s Magazine was built by convicts with sandstone quarried from the eastern side of the island.  It also housed the first water police station and harbour fire brigade before becoming a shipyard.  The island is a location for films and concerts, including the television series Water Rats.
