Wonderful section of town to just wander through. You can get a glass of wine at a cafe ... or a coffee ... and the restaurants are excellent.
Really nice area. Very trendy with shops, art galleries, and restaurants. On the weekend they have a market with all types of awesome crafts, food, clothing etc. At night it becomes a party palace with upscale clubs and lounges playing cool music and providing a chill environment. The Rocks was awesome!!!
I loved the rocks for inspiration but the prices are extortionate. I wanted opals but jeez they're pricy here. There are tons of jewellers here.

Be sure to walk through the cobbled streets of this neighborhood. The history is immense and they have preserved the stories and tales from the founding days. Plenty of shops and restaurants to enjoy, as well as great views. Meet up with friends for drinks and fun!
There are lots of independent shops in this area, a cobbled road which gives the feel of what Old Sydney was like plus some old buildings dating back to the 1800s and more. I was there on a Friday and there were lots of food stalls, not sure if this is the only day for this market. Great place to... More
