The Rocks Walking Tours
Shop 4a - Clocktower Square, Cnr Argyle & Harrington Sts, The Rocks NSW 2000, AUSTRALIA
The Rocks Walking Tours has long been introducing travellers and locals alike to the fascinating story of this unique place in Sydney’s history and having chosen to specialise only in The Rocks & Millers Point our expertise in these areas ensures you get the most out of your time with us!
Hear how The Rocks was inhabited by that First Fleet of convicts arriving as they did into Sydney Cove in 1788 thus impacting forever on the local Indigenous people’s way of life.
We would delight in sharing with you this story of triumph over tragedy and introduce the characters from this early convict settlement era 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.
Today, The Rocks is renowned for having the oldest streets in Sydney which are dotted with beautifully restored nineteenth century buildings along with 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.
Our groups weave their 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.
