“A Bit of History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

The old buildings give the area a feeling of the history of the area. Yes, the rock walls add to this interesting area. Lots of restaurants and cafés to sit back and enjoy.

“Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

This is the old, but upscale, neighbourhood of the city. We first came here to try out the famous pancakes, and have since returned several times just to walk around and while the evening away over a few drinks. There are some nice views to be had as well.

“History Personified”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Located adjacent to Sydney Harbour, The Rocks is a great place to visit for history buffs, shoppers and sightseers. It has markets, restaurants, pubs, boutique shops, buskers and plenty of history to take in. The buildings are some of the first in Sydney and date back some 200 years, a photographers paradise.

“Walked through on the way to the bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

Lovely upscale neighborhood with restaurants and cruise ship terminal. We walked from Circular Quay to the stairs that take you up to the pedestrian walkway over the Harbor Bridge. Definitely worth a visit.
