"The Rocks" The Rocks Tip by shrimp56

The Rocks, Sydney: 91 reviews and 147 photos


The Rocks is the place where the first convict ships landed in Australia. This is supposed to be the first building. It used to be shameful to admit that your forebearers were common English criminals, but now it's considered very chic to be 'First Fleet'. I have a good friend down in Canberra who is 'FF' on BOTH sides of the family! He looks fine to me:)

Address: Circa Circular Quay
Directions: The Rocks is on the other side of the 'U' from the opera house.
