This is a real gem to visit with a trip back in time. It is amazingly fascinating and the tour guide was great to listen to. Do yourself a favour and make sure you visit, you won't be disappointed.

Fascinating little piece of Australian history. It's a an old terrace of four houses and appears to be pretty much as it was back in the 1800s. A must if you live in Sydney.

This place gives you another aspect of life years ago. Very interesting. Well worth the entry fee, staff are very informative. Glad it was not demolished along with other buildings.

It seems that the Susannah Museum is closed except to pre booked groups. It looks very interesting from the outside but that's all we were able to enjoy.

This tour emerses you in Australian history and puts our multicultural past into perspective...from the immigrants that built it to the working class europeans that inhabited it over the years.

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
