Our Safe Practices

Welcome to Marina Café & Bar

Located next to Camber Wharf marina, and between Fitzroy and Sutherland Docks, the Marina Café is a relaxed outdoor setting, ideally situated to set up a base for the day, or spend time taking a break and planning your next move on the Island. We are a family friendly operation, ensuring kids can find things to enjoy as well as their parents.

About Us

The Marina Café is licenced with a range of beers, wines and soft drinks on offer, and without question we make the best coffee on the Island! The menu is full of fresh, tasty food, including pizzas, nachos, toasted wraps, salads, homemade cakes, muffins, ice creams and more. Don’t forget to check boards for regular specials.

There is seating for 120 and a marquee to provide all-weather protection.

Finding us and getting here!

The Marina Café & Bar is located in the Docks Precinct on Cockatoo Island.
This is about a 5-minute easy walk from the ferry wharf at Cockatoo Island (worth the walk!).

Walk past the information center and head through the dog leg tunnel OR walk around the long way, through the Turbine Shop and arrive in the Docks (you will see us straight ahead).

Our café is located on Camber Wharf, and casual berths are available any time; $15 per four hours for boats up to 30’; please pay at the café. Overnight berths can also be booked by contacting Cockatoo Boat Storage.
