Fascinating slice of colonial history in the heart of The Rocks/
The remains of several old houses provide an insight into how difficult life must have been at that tome. The tiny houses give testimony to how families libed in early 19th Century Sydney. Remember that the average couple had between 4 and 10 children.
Worth a visit.

This park is a magical place in the historic Rocks area of Sydney.

Remnants of tenement houses with furniture to make them come to life.

See how cramped living conditions were. Open day and night.

Wandering up the Rocks you may come across a gap between shopfronts that goes through the a multistoried park at the back of historic shop front. Filled with outdoor furniture its a magic quiet refuge in busy Sydney

Foundation Park is a gem displaying foundations of homes long past. There are replica furniture pieces to give an idea of room sizes together with original steps, trees and plumbing.

Tucked away in the back streets of Sydney's oldest streets, this small park with a difference is worth checking out. It would be a nice place to enjoy a bite to eat, if you've taken a picnic or grabbed some takeaway.
