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

Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi

waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
