As one of Australia’s oldest neighbourhoods, The Rock boasts plenty of historic magnificence and on this tour we guarantee that you won’t be disappointed by the clandestine ruins beneath the now trendy streets. Historically the area had a reputation as a slum on the arriving convicts’ side of town. Often frequented by visiting sailors and prostitutes, the contrast to todays trendy vibe is sharp as the cobbled streets are lined with boutique stores and quaint cafés.
The Rocks historic area was once home to the Gadigal aboriginal people and later became the country's first site of European settlement. There is therefore so much vibrant history to discover in this neighbourhood and we will introduce you to it all. Among the many things you will explore on this tour is Fortune of War, Sydney’s oldest pub, and the haunted Susannah Place, where the ghost of a little convict girl is rumoured to roam at dusk.
Head to The Rocks these days, and you'll find a smart, vibrant Sydney neighborhood packed with fancy restaurants, cool rooftop bars, art galleries, and independent shops. But those historic streets that attract so many visitors hide a darker past too… one full of grisly deaths, shocking crimes, and all sorts of shady goings-on.
Take a step into the city's underworld on this evening tour in the company of a local host who will let you into some of the secrets that lurk behind one of the city's most vibrant and buzzing neighborhoods. In the city's early days, this was a place where convicts first arrived on boats – so it's no surprise to hear that it soon turned into a den of shady activity, disease, and dodgy deaths.
On this one-and-a-half-hour Sydney walking tour, hear stories of those darker days, as you visit the sites while the sun sets. Hear about the hideous murder that took place around Cadman's Cottage and learn about the shady practices at the first working morgue.
If you’re wondering how to see the best of Sydney in just one day, this tour is what you need. Go to the must-sees of the city and cover more ground on this extended experience.
