Don't worry, the island gets its name from its shape, not from an abundance of sharks. Goat Island: West of the Harbour Bridge, Goat Island was formerly a gunpowder store, convict quarry and water-police headquarters. Getting there: Accessible only on a guided tour arriving by ferry. Book through Cadman's Cottage and learn about life as a convict or soldier on Goat Island. Unique Sydney Cruises also runs tours (uniquesydneycruises.com.au). Rodd Island: Near Birkenhead Point, Rodd Island was used by Louis Pasteur's nephew as a laboratory to develop a rabbit- killing agent in the late 19th century. Today, it's a popular lunch site, with historic buildings, picnic tables, water and toilets. Open daily, 9am to 5pm. Getting there: Water taxi or charter vessel. You can anchor nearby and swim or paddle ashore after dropping off passengers. You should contact Cadman's Cottage first.
