The Rocks is a neighbourhood of historic laneways in the shadow of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Discover the colonial history of this area which has been transformed from a British colony of convicts, soldiers and sailors into a thriving 21st century entertainment precinct right by spectacular Sydney Harbour. Amble along on cobbled laneways, enjoy a cool drink in Australia’s oldest pubs, and marvel at iconic attractions – the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
For breathtaking views of beautiful Sydney Harbour, ascend the bridge with BridgeClimb Sydney or go to the Pylon Lookout. A wonderful way to discover the magic of The Rocks is on foot. There are markets, museums and galleries tucked into little laneways. Take a self-guided tour or join The Rocks Walking Tours. The I’m Free Tour starts at 6pm outside Cadmans Cottage, built in 1816. You can also hire bicycles and pedal around the harbour foreshore.
The Rocks is just a short stroll away from The Tank Stream Hotel.
