The Rocks

Highly recommended
A warren of cobbled lanes, cul-de-sacs, courtyards, heritage pubs and former labourers' cottages, The Rocks whisks you back to the city's fascinating Colonial era. The oldest district of Sydney, once a rather unsavoury area, has become a popular tourist destination. Perfectly restored, some argue too much so, the district features terraces of former housing, workshops and warehouses, converted into art galleries, souvenir shops, trendsetting restaurants and café terraces.
