The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

Hi Pamela. If you arrive at that time and then check into your hotel, you might be pushing it for time. How long are you in Sydney? If a few days, you could give it a go on another night. This should stop you from having to... More

Hello we did the Rocks ghost tour Sydney last night. Great tour. The Quarantine station North Head in Sydney is fantastic, Parramatta Gaol is also great. Hope this helps.

Hi Kim, we meet 15 minutes before the tour on the lower courtyard of Cadman’s Cottage. This is on the lower corner of George St and Argyle St The Rocks. There is a map with directions on your confirmation email.
