The Harbour Trust has launched a collection of immersive exhibitions on the Google Arts & Culture platform, meaning people can experience our network of extraordinary places anytime, anywhere in the world. Jump online and marvel at the 'Iron Giants' of Cockatoo Island, explore the grounds of Australia's original lighthouse, descend into an underground military bunker once shrouded in secrecy... and so much more!

We will also demystify an underground bunker once shrouded in secrecy: The Plotting Room.
