Fortunately, some of the Old City's oldest buildings and other architectural features were spared from the developers' wrecking ball! We enjoyed walking through the area - on our own, and as part of a Pub tour and an Aborigine Heritage tour (both fo which were...More
A location very near the Harbour bridge makes it a pleasant location for a bridge walkabout. The day we visited they had canceled an outdoor market because of expected winds (that did not arrive). While we were dissapointed the market did not take place, we...More

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!
Yes they do! Experience all the excitement of Sydney, Australia’s famous harbour city, and the capital of NSW with the Big Bus Sydney and Bondi Explorer - Sydney’s only Hop-On Hop-Off tourist bus service.
