What a great tour! Anne was knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much about the history of Sydney. This tour was worth our time and money and if we hadn't taken this tour, we would have missed out on a wonderful part of Sydney.

From the times of indigenous habitation through early settlement to today, the history of The Rocks was covered wonderfully by our guide Vicky. The one and a half hours went by in a flash.

A great, fun and informative tour with Anne. I am fascinated by our early settler history and loved the stories as we walked the cobblestone alleys and stairs. Amazing relics still there for all to see if you know where to look. Fantastic!

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and

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
