This park was pretty cool, with part of it being under the bridge and part of it having the battery with a large gun emplacement. It would be a good spot for a picnic lunch in the park.

A well laid out area with good history storyboards amid the excavated ruins of the fort. The rumble of the rail and road traffic on the Harbour Bridge brings the place to life. Yet another spot to capture different vies of the Harbour area

This park is particularly suited to picnics, especially during summer when the Harbour Bridge ensures this park is in shade. Found at the northern end of The Rocks, views of the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour, The Harbour Bridge and The Rocks are available year...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in 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
