The Rocks Sydney tour is one of the most popular ways to see one of the most historic and fascinating areas of Sydney. The Rocks is the name given to the relatively small area where Sydney had its beginnings as a European convict settlement. Most walks take two or three hours and take in the area’s main attractions, including the Justice and Police Museum, and Cadman’s Cottage which dates from 1816. The neighbourhood is also home to plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants, including several of the oldest pubs in Sydney. And if you tour the Rocks at the weekend, don’t miss the market, held every Saturday and Sunday, offering food, souvenirs and crafts. Several of the city’s best hotels can be found in and around this historic area, and your tour also offers great views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
