Me-Mel (Goat Island)

Part of Sydney Harbour National Park, Me-Mel is listed on the State Heritage Register for its rich array of Aboriginal, historic and natural heritage values, including over 30 buildings and structures dating from the 1830s to the 1960s.

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is working with the Me-Mel Transfer Committee to make recommendations to the NSW Government for the transfer of Me-Mel in Sydney Harbour to Aboriginal ownership and management.

To prepare for this transfer, NPWS is undertaking a large-scale remediation and conservation program of the island’s built assets.

NPWS is committed to transparent and open communication. On this site, you'll find the latest information about both the remediation works and the transfer project.
