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.
