    Very popular with tourists for a reason. Apart of the great view of the Opera house, this area is one of the earliest settlements in Sydney and is full of quaint architecture. Worth exploring.

    Great place to wander around, lots of nooks and crannies to explore with tidbits about life in the colony. Sunday markets are worth a look, lots of interesting things.

    Get off the beaten path and roam around the charming streets of the first European settlement in Australia. Starting point for the Harbour Bridge. Great view of Sydney. A true gem

    A living proof that Sydney has been high on spirits even 200 years back. Find the oldest pub in Sydney and also find a self-cook steak place. Enjoy Sydney!

    The Rocks is a must walk for anybody visiting Sydney, or if you are Sydneysider just looking for a nice walk. :) Go west of the bridge to the less touristy side.

    Full of old pubs. Most with great craft beers. Some cafes are heavy on tourists but that doesn't mean the quality is low.

    The oldest suburb in Sydney. Named for Arthur Phillip's command upon mooring in what is now Circular Quay, "chain the prisoners up to the rocks!"

    Be careful of the birds. If u eat at the food court guard your food and cover it. The birds WILL steal it from your bowl right in front of you if you do not cover/hover over it.
