    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

    Walk out side door of hotel not front. In alleyway that has restaurant entrance. There ahead is a cafe that is organic and healthy and fresh food. Just can’t remember it’s name. So just a stroll under 2mins.
