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.
"Always beautiful but the continuous road works in George St limits the experience"
reviewed 2 days ago by Georgie B
I love the Quay but the road works are expected to continue for another 12 months or so (I was informed by businesses in the area) and between the dust, noise and the limited pedestrian access spoils it. Walking down there were road works, barricades and you sort of needed to walk single file. Once there more works were taking...
"Great location in Circular Quay, strong exhibitions too, worth a look"
reviewed 3 days ago by finesilver
This Museum is right on Circular Quay, just near the cruise ship Quay. I enjoy it every time I come to Sydney. It has some interesting ever changing exhibitions and attractions and some which are permanent.
I find it worth a quick explore as part of any Harbor tour.
Friendly staff, good restaurant above too.
The house looks small and only when you start to walk around than you realize, that it’s quite a sizable building. We went on a guided tour, and our volunteer guide was very knowledgeable and informative. He managed to make the story of this family and their tenants captivating, and he gave us a very accurate portrait of that period...
Nurse's walk is a small lane just adjacent to the Rocks in Sydney, around the site of the first medical facilities in the infant town. Apart from being a short cut down to Circular Quay, it has interesting information around the walls of the lane. Take a little time to read it.
Pies live or die by their pastry. These pies are immortal in a world where not many are remarkable.
I was tempted by the Nutella twist — a bit too heavy for my taste. The marzipan croissant I’ll have next time.
Tame table-hopping lorikeets live here and are cute unless Hitchcock’s The Birds gives you the creeps.
The service was exceptionally friendly and helpful, there is clearly a large cohort of regulars who come here. I arrived on a hot sunny Sydney morning and was relieved to see the tables are in the shade!
I had the call me corny. There were very generous portions of corn fritters, bacon, avocado, tomato and rocket...great value for money!!
Stayed unexpectedly for Dinner with wife and another couple .. All 4 meals ordered were we thought of exceptional quality , would definitely eat there again .. service at bar was pretty good taking into account the number of patrons .. good entertainment on the Thursday night - all up we stayed the whole night instead of moving on --...
Stayed in 2 bed apartment which had spectacular views across the harbour.
Good size for 4 adults with all facilities needed for a longer stay. Although didn't use the leisure facilities they looked very good and again had wonderful views.
Location was very good for the rocks area and access to the ferry and cruise ports
I highly recommend the four seasons hotel to any person travelling to Sydney , either for work or leisure .
The location is amazing with literally everything in walking distance . The staff is respectful and pleasant . And the view is to die for .
Stayed here for 1 night , rooms are large with amazing views across the harbor. Staff were friendly and helpful, located next to the Rocks and a few mins walk from Circular Quay for trains and ferries. Rooftop bar offers great views onto the harbor and the Opera House and is only slightly more expensive than a regular bar -...
Stayed for a few days last week with good lady and 2 ten age daughters as a stopover before going on to stay with family elsewhere in Oz.
I was slightly apprehensive having read some of the reviews but can honestly say the positives are
- First class location (bridge, circular quay, rocks market, nice cafes and restaurants close by)...
There is an interesting quirkiness about the place. It definitely has some charm, which makes up for other shortcomings. Rooms are noisy - the minibar really is very noisy, and cleanliness could be slightly improved. Breakfast is fine, however for the price they charge per room it could be slightly better.
Location is absolutely excellent. It's just by the harbour...
