A 3-hour Historic Walk of this beautiful district of Sydney

The Rocks Walking Tour is one of the most popular short tours in Sydney. The Rocks is significant for its historical background and as the oldest area in Australia.

The Rocks is located in Sydney CBD, but the style of the area is unlike all others in the city. There are many old sandstone buildings, constructed during the first few years of British colonization and an area that you will definitely like to see. Some interesting stories will help you understand the locals and make your stay in Sydney more enjoyable, as you start being introduced to Australian culture and its people.

I often say to my visitors that one could not come to Sydney without visiting the Rocks. It's on most visitor's bucket list as one of the must visit places in Sydney. Throughout the walk, you will also view other nearby Sydney icons, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and Sydney Opera House from across the harbour.

An easy and relaxing walk, and will easily provide an informative and interesting sojourn during your visit to Sydney.
