Between Circular Quay and George Street, an interesting early building, formerly the Harbour Masters residence. There are a couple of information boards outside with reproductions of early drawings with the cottage. Worth a quick stop to take a look at the outside.
Its great heritage like this is protected as we are such a young country.
You couldn't get into it and it has limited info on it which could be updated / expanded. It would be great if it was open as it could give such...More
This is clearly a very historic building and fortunate this old stone cottage has been retained There was some work underway but this could be better presented and could be quite a popular place for tourists interested in the history. Worth a quick visit.
Bravo Sydney for keeping this gem protected. Worth a look. It was not open to the public but there was informational signage that could use some updating. Next to the museum and across from the ship terminal.

All's well that ends well though! So back into it. Was nice I guess. Could do with some...More
This is a historical house. John Cadman was the last of the superintendent of boats. Moreover, he served the longest time in his career.

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
weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
