Stumbled upon The Australian while walking back to our hotel from the Bridge Climb. We were looking for a quick bite and a beer, and The Australian came into view. It appeared to be a lively place judging by the people at the outdoor tables. We ventured in and took a look at the menu. A variety of pizzas tempted...

I went to this place last time I visited Oz and came back again this time. It has a great selection of pizzas including kangaroo, emu and crocodile pizzas. The kangaroo pizza is very tasty. The location is great and has an outdoor seating area so you can eat in the sun.

sense of the word, but doesn't masquerade as anything else. It's a great hotel. Location to all things in the rocks and access to trains, ferries, buses etc it is a great spot. However, there are many steps to reach it if you are walking so if you have mobility problems take this into consideration.Shared bathrooms seem to work very...

This restaurant was the type of pub you'd expect in Sydney. Excellent bar service, good food and great atmosphere. I went with 5 friends and we ordered a half kanagroo/half emu pizza, a salad (just in case we hated the pizza) and beers. The salad was good - but it was a salad - the pizza was fantastic. We ordered...

Second attempt to find this pub was successful and it was worth the effort of the an almost 4-hour walk on both occasions.

My family has been coming here for years now to enjoy the pizzas and Australian beer. A great place to try an Aussie beer you may never have heard off? The crocodile pizza is pretty good too. They also have emu and kangaroo on the menu.

Visited at lunch time for a quick beer, good choice on the pumps. Came back later for more beer and a pizza; pizza was really good, as was the beer. Great character in this pub, would have been great to see it 50 years ago. It's a piece of history which appears to have remained relatively untouched.

Review is on its restaurant / pub only as I did not lodge here. Staffs were very friendly, helpful, and very patience though the pub was packed weekend. Bar tender helped us through their selection of finger foods, some great pizzas and pies even though he was obviously too busy (a good decent selection from the menu !!). Hard to...

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
