Sunsets, harbour views and live music are a match made in heaven. And you can get a hearty dose of all three by simply jumping on a ferry to Cockatoo Island. Sunset Sessions is making a much-needed return and bringing a jam-packed program of live gigs this summer. The popular alfresco event returns to the lawns of the historic Biloela House and features home-grown talent from across Australia.
Sunset Sessions At Cockatoo Island
Watch the sun set and jam out to live music by artists like Hayley Mary, Carla Geneve, Ashli, Dominic Breen, Aodhan, June Jones and also a number of First Nations and LGBTQIA+ performers.
