This is where Sydney started with mostly convict labour doing all the hard work. Its now a very touristy place of course but still a great place to visit. Its got a very relaxed vibe with some great old pubs (and great old characters still...More
We loved touring the rocks. Lots of fun shops. Found Manuka Honey with the correct strength in one of the great little shops. The German restaurant is the best I've had in 20 years. Try the pork knuckle.
We visited The Rocks recently in November with the family and it was an interesting area/neighbourhood. A short walk away would take one to the bottom of the iconic Harbour Bridge and the area has much to see and do, i.e. cafes, pop up stores...More
We visited the Rocks on a Friday, hoping to visit the Foodies Market only to be disappointed. There was a Christmas Market going but it was small in scale and featured very few food stalls. We did however enjoy the area and were happy to...More
Some great bars and restaurants. Have been here a number of times and never disappointed. Close to transport and when the light rail is completed will be easier to get to. Views of harbour bridge and opera house will always make you know your in...More
We visited the markets in the rocks on our way to the Roslyn Packer theatre. Food, artifacts, jewellery, etc. and food on offer.
Strolling through the area admiring early history is amazing and very satisfying. It is a Wonderful experience.
This is a unique neighbourhood around the harbour area with some interesting bars and restaurants. The area is always very lively especially from late afternoon onwards with some good outdoor seating areas to enjoy the area. For those visiting, this should be part of the...More
Walking through the rock becomes interesting when you know a little of the history of the immigrants that settled here. A combination of old buildings, newer and the newest tell a story of the city development. Nice cafe's and restaurants all over.
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
Not in the Rocks but a great boutique hotel (more like an Inn), Is Simpson’s of Potts Point . This is a historic Victorian mansion on a tree-lined street with about 12 rooms, and is a 20-minute walk to the Rocks... More
Not in the Rocks but a great boutique hotel (more like an Inn), Is Simpson’s of Potts Point . This is a historic Victorian mansion on a tree-lined street with about 12 rooms, and is a 20-minute walk to the Rocks via the lovely harbor, with possible side trip through the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Potts Point has many great restaurants and cafes within walking distance of Simpsons. We loved our stay at Simpsons and would highly recommend it if you’re looking for intimate charm. The staff are great at recommending things to do in Sydney as well. Breakfast is included with your stay. Have a great trip!
