Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was a delightful day.
An early start to catch the 8.30am Ferry from Brooklyn Wharf.
A group of Bushwalking friends walked up the road from the Ferry.
Choice Point occurs when the road forks.
Whichever way you go the views are marvellous. Around the shoreline, up Riverview Road, it's a delight to circumnavigate the Island.

Refreshments at the Wharf Cafe before returning to the mainland for de-brief and lunch.

All great!
Good exercise.

Beautiful place to visit! We walked along the loop track which helped us appreciate the beauty this place. The fire brigade section was informative and the Cafe great for a stop

What a lovely ferry ride from Brooklyn to Dangar Island. A lovely half hour walk around the island then lunch in the quaint cafe on the water.

Lovely step away from busy everyday traffic onto the island's peace and quiet. No cars, only bird sounds! Leafy and tropical easy walk along the main road with side tracks to the beach spying waterfront humble abodes. Could see myself devouring books on my back deck or just lapping up lots of rest. Dine at the local club or cafe on the marina. Browse through the extensive book library whilst you wait for the return of the cute ferry with an informative and friendly ferry master. A well kept secret.

Wonderfully quiet and peaceful island. We went hiking, canoeing, swimming and mingled with the locals. Lovely cafe near the ferry and a charming bowling club. We were able to relax and rejuvenate on this serene island just an hour out of Sydney. Already looking forward to returning.

We felt like we were in a completely different place, but strangely only a few hours away from home. It was an amazing way to mark my 30th B’day. Lovely and definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, but don’t want to travel too far.

Great spot to unwind and relax. Holiday homes available for rent to make the most of a weekend and relaxed surroundings. Hire a boat and head over the The Estuary for breakfast or if you’re after a seafood lunch, Lifeboat (mainland Brooklyn). Die down your days finding secluded beaches and bays to enjoy all to yourself. Bowls on sundays with the locals and occasionally live music. Sit back. Relax. Unwind.

The ferry service across to the Island is from Brooklyn was efficient and reasonably priced (adults $8.10 each way, cash only). They stick to the time table and we thought that the service was very well run.

But there is not a great deal to do on the Island. Sure you can walk around the island and it is pretty. You do get some reasonably good views of the water (mainly through the trees) and there is plenty of bird life on the island.

You can get a beer at the bowling club (opens at 12 on Sundays) and the setting is quite nice, but certainly nothing special. There is also a cafe and store near the Ferry terminal. I don't think that there are any other cafe/restaurant options on the island (but I may be wrong).

The island is a nice enough place to visit but I certainly don't recommend going too far out of you way to do so. I certainly don't see any reason to go back.

Just off the shores of Brooklyn, its reached by ferry. Its rich in Indigenous, colonial and natural history. Home to 250 people whose suburb has no cars. There are pleasant parklands, beaches, bushland and spectacular 360 degrees views over the Hawkesbury River. There are over 100 animal species, mostly birds and over90 plant species recorded on or near the island.

I have lived in Sydney for almost 40 years and never made it to the this island. It is residential.. but it is peaceful and quiet. Great escape from the world for a few hours. Catch the train to Brooklyn and then on the ferry to the island. Cafe has lovely food. Pace is slow but a great day out for city slickers, and if you are visiting Sydney from overseas this is a different place to visit.
