Europeans settled this island continent about 40,000 years after the Aborigines, and Cadman's Cottage is one of the earliest surviving European-built residences. It's entirely unpretentious but the fact that it survives at all makes it unique in the Australian European experience.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone

buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
