Sydney’s own version of Alcatraz housed convicts for three decades in the mid 1800s, so it’s got plenty of character. It’s also a bit spooky. In summer, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a playground for afternoon boozehounds who head here for the famous pop-up bar, art lovers who boat over for temporary installations, and campers who want to pitch their tents for an overnight stay.
