The Rocks holds a unique place in Sydney’s colonial history as the birthplace of European Australia. An essential visitor destination, The Rocks promises to be a memorable Sydney experience.

Hear the story of Sydney as you stroll along the shoreline of sparkling Sydney Harbour with views of the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour bridge, past Campbell's Cove and Cadman’s Cottage.

Wander down hidden alleyways, into shady courtyards, along cobbled lanes whilst you get up close and personal with the living history and heritage of Australia's first British settlement.

Be amazed with stories of the First Fleet 1788, the doomed convicts, Suez Canal, the Argyle Cut 1840, the plague 1900, the diabolical 1970's plan to demolish The Rocks and the green bans that saved it. And, of course, hear of the characters and rogues who called it home.
