Cockatoo Island: An Island in the Harbour


Historical buildings with Sydney Harbour as the backdrop. Cockatoo Island is a great place for all Lomo enthusiasts. So if you ever find yourself in Sydney looking for something to do, jump on a ferry, and head to this island in the harbour.

Last month my boyfriend and I went to Sydney for the weekend and were looking for a new place to visit. We ended up jumping on a ferry and headed across to Cockatoo Island to take in the history and take some photos.

Cockatoo Island is an island located in Sydney Harbour. In its past life it has been a former imperial prison, industrial school, and one of Australia’s biggest shipyards in the 20th century. These days, it is open to the public to explore and learn about the hidden secrets of the island.

The historical buildings and structures made for some great photographic subjects. On the day we visited, I went armed with my Diana Mini and Superheadz Ultra Wide & Slim. It was great to see the island from the two cameras’ perspectives.

If you ever find yourself in Sydney and you are looking for something to do you should definitely take a ride over to Cockatoo Island. If you want further information you can visit

The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!
