Considered to be the birthplace of modern Sydney, The Rocks is home to many of Sydney’s oldest sites and buildings. Wander through its cobblestone laneways as you take in everything this precinct has to offer, from its art galleries and museums to its weekly markets and outstanding eateries. Walking tours offer the chance to learn more about The Rocks’ colourful past, and there are plenty of boutique stores selling designer clothing, local souvenirs, handicrafts and more.
The Rocks’ historic pubs and hotels benefit from some of the best locations that Sydney’s accommodation can offer. Situated in the heart of the city, The Rocks’ self-contained apartments are urban havens, with facilities all located within one private and comfortable living space. Backpacker hostels are a budget friendly option ideal for meeting like-minded travellers who may wish to explore The Rocks with you. Those who can afford something more luxurious should also consider staying at a bed and breakfast, where both freshly cooked meals and insider knowledge of the local area are included in the price.
