    The Rocks
    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.
