Steeped in history, The Rocks boasts a vibrant mix of old and new. From cobbled laneways to historic pubs and high-class restaurants, The Rocks is a great spot for visitors to explore. Iconic sights include Cadman’s Cottage (110 George Street), which was built in 1816 and is the oldest surviving building in Sydney, and The Ken Done Gallery (1 Hickson Road), which features an extensive collection of Done’s works. If you’re feeling game, The Rocks Ghost Tours (1300 731 971, Australia-wide) delves into The Rocks’ haunting past via tales of murder, hangings and bizarre disappearances. On the weekends, The Rocks Markets (10am-5pm, Saturdays and Sundays) host an eclectic range of stalls selling everything from fashion and handcrafted jewellery to original artwork and prints.
