The Friday foodies market is worth visiting - there is a very long line up for the Turkish Gozleme. The things they sell at the markets are ok - nothing I woldnt find anywhere else - but it's a nice part of Sydney to be in so I recommend it.

Evocative old quarter close to the harbour bridge with period buildings and modern conversions. Take time to stroll around and take it all in.

There is so much to see at the Rocks. You will be spoilt for choice for restaurants, cafes and bars. There are the markets on the weekend which offer a massive variety of merchandise to buy. The place is full of life and vitality and a must see place for locals and visitors alike.

There's a lot of good stuff in this area. There are lots of places to grab a yummy bite or bakeries that are serving amazing sweets. You can have a drink here or do a little shopping. It was such a cute, historic area.

The Rocks is a funny place. Funny because if you're a local it's often the kind of place you often only go to if you have visitors in town, and you get to be a tourist in your own city. Or otherwise if you get drunk, as I did in this case after some random function & end up running... More

The Rocks has some great local restaurants, but the main drawcard on the weekend are the local markets. Over 200 stalls with a variety of items for sale. Always a bargain to get and something different from normal shops.

This is one of the oldest parts of Sydney. The Bridgewalk is in this area so it's easy to visit if you do that tour. There's a tourist information center here that is very helpful and informative, and has a place for you to make bookings for tours and excursions, and answer any questions. There are lots of little shops... More
