    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

    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
