This tour meets at 9.30am at Circular Quay before heading onto George Street where we'll explore Sydney's first street. Lined with old pubs, older style shops, with just a hint of modern development, the Rocks is like stepping back in time.

We'll weave in and out of hidden passageways, and share stories including those of the Rocks Push, and other gang activity that took place in these mean streets in the early to mid 1800's. There's plenty of pubs along here, which perhaps explains how some of these stories could well have happened!

Continuing on, we'll pass under the Harbour Bridge at Dawes Point for a unique look at the Sydney Harbour Bridge before checking out Lower Fort Street, where many stories come to life, including ridiculous stories of the Hero of Waterloo pub.

Heading uphill, we'll stop at Observatory Hill where you'll witness one of the best views over Sydney, before we cut back down to the Rocks and wind our way to our post-tour coffee at a cafe with perhaps the best view of Sydney harbour.
