This place has an aura about it during the evening, with all the buildings lit up, and during the Christmas period, it really is a special part of Sydney that needs to be explored.
We wandered narrow alleys, main streets,explored the shops and local pubs. The pubs were the focus as we moved from pub to pub (weekend) listening to the bands and watching the locals. The Rocks are a great way to learn some history of Sydney, view the local Arts and music scene.
The Sat and Sun market is great. There are a ton of artists selling thier wares. I got a really nice silk scarf and other gifts. This is a lively market with nice stuff, not ceap stuff you can get around town in shops.
Interesting little windy streets and historical pubs, worth a vist, only 5 mins walk from Circular quay.
The rocks is a pleasant place to visit when in Sydney. There are lots of eating places to choose from. Although the best area is Darling Harbour for the sheer number of restaurants to choose from.
Everyone says it is a tiny museum but it has alot in it. If you are a history buff it is a must see. There are 3 floors and the front desk clerk knew everything and gave us alot of background information.
It was nice to see the heritage buildings and we were lucky to have the Rocks Marketplace on a Sunday. The mix of wares displayed was very interesting - fossil rocks to interest my young one while funky jewellery for me. Remember - the market is there only on Saturday and Sunday!!
Here you find the spirit of the first Sydney inhabitants (european!) visit the Lord Nelson Hotel and taste their fantastic beer, and if you can get a table there, have a dinner - it's very gopod
