About The Rocks Walking Tours
The Original Rocks Walking Tours explores Sydney’s oldest colonial neighbourhood that sits in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Our guides have been with us for many years and have a love of history and a wealth of knowledge they love to share. As you wander along Sydney Harbour’s sparkling shoreline and down hidden alleyways, shady courtyards and cobbled lane ways, they bring The Rocks to life with stories of how ordinary people came to do extraordinary things that started the British Australian story. Tours everyday 10:30am and 1:30pm. $32 per adult/ $15 per child departing from our office handily located in the heart of The Rocks at Shop 5 - Clocktower Square, Cnr Argyle & Harrington Sts. Conducted in intimate groups of no more than 20 people for a duration of 90 minutes at a leisurely pace covering approximately a couple of kilometres.

My partner and I enjoyed our walking tour a lot. We live in Sydney and already knew quite a bit about the area. However, the tour guide's knowledge far exceeded our expectations, we learned heaps. He managed to ignite our interest in Australia's history so much, that we ended up researching several topics mentioned by our guide after the tour. We are very happy with the tour and we highly recommend it to anybody curious about our past.

A really enjoyable experience and a great way to brush up on early colonial history. Our guide was very knowledgeable, well prepared and passionate about The Rocks area. We gained an excellent feel for what life was like for the early settlers.

Unfortunately I had an episode about 20 minutes into the tour and John the leader organised for an ambulance to take me to hospital where I was kept for the rest of the day, I have since had various test to find out what the problem was but the indications are that I was possibly overdressed for the beautiful day! John asked me to re-contact him and he will arrange for me to re-do the tour. at another time. Thank you to John for his effort to assist me on the day.
