Colourful Colonial Stories, Opera House with a private guide
CONVICTS And REBELLION
The Rocks is the birthplace of our modern Australia, and the home of the Gadigal people for some 30, 000 years.
The streets are narrow, winding and full of ghosts and stories from earlier days.
We'll see the first church, the oldest pubs with their stories of hidden passages , the site of the first farms to feed the colony, the old sailors home, the foundations and stones which gently tell of earlier times when life was more challenging, the narrow streets that served as hospitals and gardens on the edge of an unknown continent.
I'll show you some fine places to eat, and give you some ideas for your free time.
Then we'll continue around Circular Quay and the Walk of Fame, past the old Customs House and take a leisurely walk around and into the public areas of the Sydney Opera house (inside theatre visits must be booked separately)
A leisurely coffee or wine stop is included.
0900 Meet in the lobby of the Four Seasons hotel, George St the Rocks.
Explore the 220 years of colonial life on a delightful private guided walk through the streets, alleys and laneways of the Rocks
