Its such a great place to wander through and grab a bite. Don't forget the Saturday markets, everything from nice snacks to signed movie memorabilia is on sale!

“Best Part of Sydney”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

The rocks actually feel like there is some heart to Sydney. Sydney is so sprawling and the CBD is a bit clinical, so finding somewhere with history and character is a real joy

“The Rocks Rocks!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

The Rocks does rock!! So many great pubs and restaurants to duck into. There is also a market on the weekends so make sure you do that if you're there over a weekend. Lots of great artists bring their work in. From clothing to glass works, ornaments, etc. And to shop after having a brew makes it easier to let go of some cash! :)

“Old Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

You could wander around here for ages, the markets are great especially the food variations. It's a taste of the original Sydney that's appears to have been fairly well preserved. Hard to imagine when there is a massive cruise liner parked at the end of the road about 200m away.

“Sydney's Origins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Good old pubs and restaurants..where Sydney started...bit of tourist ripoff territory-but you can find some good value if you search the backstreets for the " Hero of Waterloo or' Lord Nelson" pubs....walk under the Bridge ....look at or touch the nuts and bolts that secure this massive structure...I go there often
