What people are saying:

Until 1970, careful repair work was carried out, turning the area into a tourist destination. George Street (GeorgeStreet) is the main axis of the rocky area and the first street in Australia. The rocky area extends to the harbor along the line of CahillExpressway and BradfieldHighway. In the early 19 century, the rock area was a fashionable area of Sydney, and many beautiful houses were built. After that, the shipping industry was prosperous. The rocky area has a lot to see and can easily be spent a day with visitors such as the Nurses Road and the Suez Canal, the old warehouse in the Bay of Oubert and the Sydney Bridge

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
