“very fun shops and restaurants”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

lots of fun little shops and restaurants all along this area. it's also right alongside the harbour, so there's plenty to do afterwards.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

This area is great just to walk around on a nice day and appreciate the history, architecture and scenery. First Fleet park is lovely, the art museum beautiful and the views of the water and Opera House are wonderful!

“Awesome pub atmosphere”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

If you like to visit old pubs dating back to when this country was first settled, then The Rocks is the place to go.There is so much history to be seen in the Rocks area.
There are so many great bars The Argyle near the Harbour bridge being one of my favorites for atmosphere, friendly patrons and the best view from the roof bar, especially after dark when you can see the Opera House at its best.
Another great pub is the Orient hotel.The food is great,the bands are always awesome and you can dance up a storm and meet new friends as everyone is usually so friendly.
The markets,little cafes and Art galleries are great to visit too.
So much to see and do 24hrs a day in the Rocks:)

“Must have dinner here!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Interesting to see the inscription at the memorial site. Take time to walk around to see the restos and the awesome view of the harbour bridge. Best enjoyed at night.
