Our guide Sally was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting Lots of snippets of information of past living conditions We hope that the old buildings do not get demolished in the name of progress! That would be a huge loss to 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
