The Rocks Walking Tour [SYD1125]
Day Tour, The Rocks Walking Tour (1.5 Hrs). Sydney, Australia

What better way to get up close and personal with the living history and heritage of Sydney than on foot. Hear lively tales from Sydney’s colourful past while enjoying the ambience of the city’s vibrant present.

The story unfolds with many rich accounts of the antics of sailors, larrikins and rogues as they roamed the rugged rocks seeking the haunts of entertainment and friendly company.

Still to be seen today are the storehouses, pubs and working class cottages from the time when this place took on all of the characteristics of a dockside area and a disease ridden slum.

Today, The Rocks is renowned for having the oldest streets in Sydney which are dotted with beautifully restored nineteenth century buildings.

You will weave your way through hidden narrow alleyways, along charming cobbled lanes and into shady courtyards, linger by quaint terrace cottages and visit a gothic church. These enjoyable aspects of a visit to The Rocks could be easily overlooked by the casual unguided visitor.
