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.
Circular Quay is where it all happens! Ferries and Trains to various locations. Easy to navigate and plenty of good signage. My only negative comment is if you are a backpacker or want to walk around without your luggage there are no storage lockers!! which I think is ridiculous... closest was a 15 minute walk ...
"Working class life comes to life in detail from the past"
reviewed 2 days ago by Kevin K
It makes a very good contrast to see the opulence of Elizabeth Bay House and compare it with these working class cottages.There is an obligatory guided tour of the small row of old terrace houses and the tour is very good-- you step into the lives of the people who lived here and get to know them and the houses...
After an extensive walk around Millers and Daws Point we needed a cool down in the air-conditioned Museum of Contemporary Art. The permanent collection on the 2nd floor has some nice aboriginal pieces but overall is a bit lame. Most of the items are of „the emperor new clothes“ origin where the art appears to be solely to come up...
Great climb. Team did a great job preparing you...seamless process and thought of everything regarding your gear. Even the emotional hankie. Sherry was an awesome guide, keeping us safe and telling us stories of the bridge. Next time all the way to the top!! Highly recommend!
We visited last night, made a last minute reservation which was just as well as the restaurant was very busy! which is usually a good sign and our experience didn’t disappoint. The food, the service the atmosphere were all terrific, our server Zoey was lovely, and could do not do enough for us without being intrusive. This place is definitely...
Coffee and baguettes for six of us. The baguettes were all beautiful, we all enjoyed the baguette more than the delicious fillings! Coffees and teas were very good. Nice touch having water and glasses available for everyone to serve themselves.
Here, it's all about the decor. Eclectic, vintage, mismatched. Great terrace overlooking the market.
The tea & scones are fab. One is plenty though! Great selection of jams, although for me it has to be strawberry.
Perhaps slightly over priced but nevertheless worth it to find this tiny slice of England in amongst the hubbub of Sydney.
I was in Sydney for business and a friends birthday. Four Seasons was perfect. The bar (Grain) was superb and the rooms were very well serviced. I use this hotel each time I stay in Sydney and I can say that it has improved with each visit.
"Great 1-bedroom apartment living for business and leisure"
reviewed yesterday by ajpurcell2016
I had a one bed apartment in SYD last weekend - it had a separtate kitchen, laundry and bathroom. Perfect for the business traveller (one person) or for two people.
It is very close to Rocks area of Sydney (perfect for the climb of the Harbour Bridge) or in my case close to the Opera House. I love watching the...
It's been 25 years since we last stayed at the Shangri-La and we enjoyed just as much as the first time we stayed there! We did have a wonderful accommodation package (Fine Hotels and Resorts), which included a 4pm check-out, so our overnight stay felt more like 2 days. We're locals, but I really like the hotel's location - 5...
I have stayed here several times. Near to Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Sydney Opera House. Very comfortable hotel with helpful staff. Not the height of luxury but excellent value. Excellent breakfasts and restaurant open all day. Roof top pool with great views. Guest laundry facilities. The Rocks district is historically important. Good Arts and Crafts market at weekends.
We had a great view from our Heritage Room.. Everything we could ask for.. Breakfast, which was included in our price, was wonderful.. Staff were so friendly & helpful.. Close to Sydneys hot spots.. Would come again..
