We had Rowan the Ghost Guide, he was really good. Funny in places and kept the group moving. The history was really interesting, loved hearing all the stories and even some Murders. Bit of a walk up and down the alley ways of the Rocks...More

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 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.
