The Soren Larson is an amazing vessel, beautifully kept - the wood work and lines of the ship a pleasure. We had a fabulous time on the afternoon cruise, watching the crew working the ropes, sails and actually sailing in the harbour under the harbour...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The
