Often walk across the bridge and stop of at the Australian for a couple of beers on the outside tables. The staff are friendly and pub has a relaxed casual customer base. Can get pretty lively on the right night too.

I couldnt decide between the Kangaroo Pizza or then Crocodile Pizza so they made me half and half. A big selection of local beer and brilliant outside seating. Great place. Its also right next to the bridge so s little walk over it post pizza burns off what was just eaten!

Met family here for lunch on my weekend stay at The Rocks. Many areas in this heritage pub to choose for a group lunch from outside to the quiet 'parlour' downstairs. Good choice of food. Staff were accommodating. Great atmosphere. Clean toilets.

Ate here 4 years ago on our last day in Australia and superb hang out while you contemplate a 20 hour flight. We had crocodile pizza which is light and fresh. Wash it down with a Dirty Granny pint! It is heaving at lunch time with workers from the offices so pick your time well.

DO NOT COME HERE IF YOU LIKE 5 STAR AND ENSUITE. Right. Hopefully that will put off those who might not appreciate this place for the gem it is. I stayed here for a week while visiting family in Sydney. On arrival and in fact with any of my interactions with the staff it was all smiles. Real honest, nice... More

We stayed here for the charm of staying in a true old heritage hotel. One of the oldest - - if not the oldest hotel in Sydney. Located In the rocks, 3 of us stayed in the multi bedroom apartment. It was great. Fab old pup below, great food and just around the corner from 'everything'. Bars, restaurants, bridge, shopping... More

I have been to Sydney several times now and we tend to stay in the ROCKS area. We always end up eating and having beers here. It's like "Home Base". There is no table service, go inside and order at the bar and they will give you a number to display at your table and bring it out to you.... More

Quick trivia - The Australian Coat of Arms has a kangaroo and an emu on it. These two animals were chosen because it is said that they cannot move backwards, only forward - which symbolizes progress. (But if you're Aussie, I'm sure you already know this, in which case, just bear with me) The Australian Heritage Hotel has something called,... More

My husband and I stayed here recently for our first wedding anniversary. Perhaps considered an odd choice for a first wedding anniversary but we adored it. This hotel has so much character and is so reasonably priced. The room was lovely and clean and just had so much charm. The staff were so lovely. We arrived at 7pm which was... More
