Hey Everyone,

A group of my InterNations friends and I are heading over to Cockatoo Island to celebrate Australia Day with a Picnic & BBQ!

We are extending the invite as we've found that quite a few others may wish to join us!

*** Please note the VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

+ There's a NO BYO Booze policy on the Island!
Pretty standard rule across most public places in NSW "especially Sydney", so there's NO SURPRISE here!

The Harbour Trust's rules and regulations are strictly enforced, so there will be rangers and security personnel not only checking as people arrive off the ferries, but they also patrol the island doing random bag checks, and you can be fined up to $340!

Interim Meeting Point is Protected content (Licensed to serve alcohol) - Alcohol can be purchased here throughout the day, but MUST be consumed within that premises. Once we’ve affirmed a shaded BBQ/Picnic spot by the public BBQ area, I will update in the comments the “official meeting point”.

Also, no portable BBQ's or Skateboards!

+ This is NOT an OFFICIAL InterNations Event:

I’m a member of interNations and this is an open invitation to a highly celebrated public holiday event = There's NO event ticket cost!

I'm NOT hosting, I'm an attendee, and therefore I will NOT tolerate or be responsible for anyone's bad behaviour, recklessness or rudeness! So let’s not spoil it for everyone!

+ For further details on Cockatoo Island, including logistics can be found on the website:
