During your walking tour of the Rocks, you will be transported back through the ages, visit three local pubs and be entranced by its history and tales of larrikins, donahs, riff-raff, harlots and even, murder. The area is dynamic, vibrant and historical – it’s even an Australian archeological hotspot!

Named by convicts, the Rocks initially fell into the convicts’ side of town while the ‘respectable’ citizen lived to the east. This historical area is the scene of drama, intrigue and many rags to riches stories as the convicts shipped to the fledging colony made their fortunes.

Develop a fascination with the area’s history which was once known to be a place of drunken debauchery, brothels, and sinners. The Rocks is also home to Sydney’s oldest house and Australia’s oldest street. As you stroll along the cobblestones enjoying the fabulous architecture, you will see many of the more than 100 heritage sites and buildings. Early buildings were made of handmade bricks or sandstone blocks and today, you can still see the crushed cockleshells between the blocks!

Surrounded on three sides by water, people always enjoy the extraordinary views of Sydney’s landmarks when visiting the neighborhood. While the once dangerous alleys and stone buildings provide perfect backgrounds for photos and selfies.

Today, the Rocks is home to vibrant markets and fantastic restaurants. You can look forward to sampling the gastronomic delights of a gourmet burger (vegetarian option available) perfectly matched with a locally produced craft beer for dinner.

“Love this tour. I was the only person booked and Lucy, tour guide, was just lovely. I did not at anytime feel like it was too much to do the tour just for me. I will definitely use Urban tours again but this time I will book through Urban Tours and not Expedia as they charged me about $30 extra. So worthwhile and interesting. Shoutout to Lucy for being so fabulous”
