Bloke was great, very good history of the place discussed, and place is set up we believe in true period style. Small amount of lollies, trinkets on offer, worthy 1 hour tour for anyone interested in some of the Rocks history, and cheap entry. Narrow...More

Left in its original condition, these terrace houses are actually fascinating! To be honest I didn't have the highest expectations for the museum, but the tour told the stories of people who had previously lived in these terraced houses. If you're looking for a little...More

You will only be here for as long as the tour takes, an hour, as it's a small place. Easy to fit in with a walk around The Rocks. My tour guide was well informed and her love for the place was contagious. The four...More

We would never have found this without our trusty guide book. It is a row of small terraced houses occupied by Sydney's working classes until 1990. As the developers moved in to gentrify a tardy rundown area of the city these properties were saved for...More

Small terraced house with back yard that is filled with old furniture from victorian period as well as some cooking product packets/tins. Several other properties in the vicinity which are worth visiting also if heritage interests you.

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