“great place to visit”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

went there on a tour bus and had a look around, it is great for the history buffs, a museum that is free is just up the road near information centre.
Great little shops and galleries in some of the old terrace houses, which in there is really interesting themselves.
We went back there one night and had dinner at an italian resturant, can't remember the name but was a great night out

“Historic and interesting”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

In a relatively young city, it's to find an historic centre where you can get a feel for the old world. The Rocks is a lovely place for a walk and has several cafes and restaurants that offer good, however overpriced, food. There are great harbour views and also the weekeend markets are ideal for buying souvenirs.

“Beautiful !”

Wish I had time for a coffee at a restaurant with a view. The buildings are picturesque and the area is quaint. you'd feel transported instantly into another world.

“The Rocks, historical Sydney”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

There is lots of variety around here and surely everyone will find something to please. The markets at the weekend are good. Head to The Rocks from the ferry terminal.
