"Take a walk at the Rocks" The Rocks Tip by Gypsystravels

The Rocks, Sydney: 92 reviews and 150 photos

  Harbour Bridge view from The Rocks
by Gypsystravels

The Rocks is one of the most-visited parts of Sydney. Nestled at the foot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and on the western shores of Sydney Cove, The Rocks is the foundation place of Sydney and Australia, and of enormous historical signifiance. It is often described as "Sydney's outdoors museum". The Rocks is the oldest area of Sydney and has recently undergone some amazing changes. The old district has been transformed into an area of vibrant cafes and restaurants along with interesting tourist shops and stalls.

The Rocks is Sydney's oldest preserved colonial district and through the transformation has brought about an interesting fusion of modern amenities in an old and valued setting.

There is so much to see and do here as well as enjoy some great food of a drink (or two).
