About The Rocks

The Rocks is the birthplace of Sydney and has been transformed into a tourist precinct since 1970. Located in the shore of the bustling Sydney Harbour, , the Rocks houses ancient colonial buildings which are now transformed into bars, restaurants, galleries and souvenir shops. The Cadman`s Cottage next to the Sydney Visitor Centre is a historic residential building dating back to 1845. Although the Rocks is not large, there are quite a lot of activities. If you want to learn more about the early history of Sydney, you can take a ghost tour around the Rocks, walk through the alleys illuminated by lanterns, and listen to the legendary stories.

    It’s a very nice place to visit. you can see the opera house under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. There is a big green area under the bridge where you can bring your food and do picnic. highly recommend people to visit on Sundays as they have a Sunday market with plenty of stores selling souvenirs and food. There are a lot of coffee shops and bars and bistro around the area so you can easily get a drinks and chill few hours there. It is jist walking distance to the Sydney Opera House.

    The Rocks, under the Sydney Bridge, used to be the home of early prisoners. Now it's the symbol of Sydney! Cobblestone streets, distinctive buildings, museums, art galleries, weekend fairs and harbour scenery make it one of the most popular areas. Talented street artists are always singing beautifully; special crafts stalls are crowded, unable to stop; enthusiastic vendors are loudly hawking their own delicacies; is it more pleasant to go into colonial courtyards and enjoy afternoon tea than that?! ____________ Here, history and modernity merge perfectly, and visitors or locals to Sydney are worth strolling around and experiencing the unique street style.

    This is the oldest community in Australia. There are many old houses at both ends. It is said that it still keeps the Victorian style. This place is very close to all scenic spots. Whether it is the Opera Bridge or Hyde Park, if its foot strength is good, it can also walk, of course, there are many public transport can take. The roads here are different from those in other parts of Sydney. Sydney is a city built on mountains, so many roads have many slopes, but the roads in this community are basically flat. There are so many restaurants and bars that it has become a must for tourists.

    The Rocks Sydney Rock Area, the earliest buildings mostly built of local sandstone, is Sydney's most interesting and poetic area, adjacent to the Sydney Opera House, close to the Harbour Bridge. The Victorian Architecture and Modern Art Museum in the colonial period blend history and modern perfectly. Walking in the rocky area, you can not only see the remains of Sydney's growth, but also the best place to eat, drink and play in the most elite tourist area of Sydney.

    In the old part of Sydney, the streets are quiet and peaceful, the buildings are not high, but they are very beautiful and have the feeling of a small town. Pancakes*in rock's barbecue steak, especially pork steak, is their specialty dish. It tastes good and everyone is admiring it.

    Rock area is the first area landed in Sydney, Australia, in 1788. It is also the earliest developed area. The buildings in the area are more traditional and connected with the harbour. They are very beautiful. There are many coffee bars in the central business circle. They can sit idly and enjoy the romantic time.
