“Some good free entertainment”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Hanging around here for lunch one day brought us an interesting array of "things to observe" we saw a couple of aboriginal performances, some interesting buskers and plenty of cultural diversity.

“Beautiful old part of the city”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The Rocks have a lot of old, restored buildings which gives the area a lot of charm. There's no shortage of places to eat or go for drinks. There are some really nice restaurants and cafes in this area.

“Wander the markets”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We like to visit the rocks on a weekend if in sydney, have a coffee and wander the weekend markets.

Close to walk around the harbour to the opera house and take in all the sights.

A lovely part of sydney to explore!
