What a great place to stroll around whether the markets are on or not. Caught a ride on a motor bike going over the bridge and around Kirribilli and the Rocks -awesome!!

“The Rocks tourist area in Sydney is full of overpriced restaurants..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

But right smack dab in the middle of over-priced restaurants is the Orient Pub... Their Mega Deals are Monday $10 bar food, Tuesday $10 steaks, Wednesday $12 pasta, Thursday $10 burgers! Yum!

“If you like history, this is the place to stay and see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

the Rocks is the old section of the city, down near the waterfront. There are still many of the original buildings from the 1800's including the Reynolds Hotel (very charming boutique hotel - right in the heart of The Rocks)

“Great places to stay and eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I looked all over Sydney for places central to the "action" and this worked out great, train from the airport drops off right on the water and the BUS service here is fantastic.
