This area is hugely popular with tourists and it’s pretty easy to see why. Alongside Sydney icons such as the Harbour Bridge, it’s also an area absolutely brimming with history: and there’s enough of it still standing to really bring the past to the modern day and give The Rocks an ambience like nowhere else. It’s also a fabulous excuse to have a drink in the name of education, as it’s littered with historic pubs. Plus, its market is simply legendary, and that’s just the tip of the rocks.

Getting to The Rocks
The Rocks may be historical, but its transport links are thoroughly modern. From Sydney Airport, you can grab a train, night bus, shuttle, taxi or Towncar, with the latter being the most expensive option but all being reasonably quick.
