Take a step back in time, and visit this historic harbourside village, located just one kilometre from Sydney’s central business district. The steep streets of Millers Point are lined with 19th-century style architecture and quaint terrace housing. There is plenty to explore like Barangaroo Reserve, a popular picnic destination and The Sydney Observatory – renowned as one of the most significant sites in Australia’s scientific history. Peruse the casual pubs in the Rocks District, including Australia’s oldest pub brewery, the Lord Nelson Brewery and The Hero of Waterloo which has been in operation since colonial times.
To the west of the harbour is Walsh Bay, a bustling cosmopolitan area with a huge range of dining options and stunning theatrical experiences from the Sydney Theatre Company and Sydney Dance Company. Walsh Bay is also home to the Gondwana Choir and the Bangarra Dance Theatre, Australia’s premier Indigenous performing arts group.
Millers Point is ideal for Sydney Harbour Exploration, conveniently located to the west of Circular Quay and to the North of King Street Wharf. Other must-see attractions in the area include the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Botanical Gardens, Luna Park and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
