An amazing experience sailing through the harbour on a beautiful Norwegian tall ship. Sipping our bottomless glasses of champagne, watching the sunset, Andrew, our host, was very informative and the staff entertaining. Definitively recommend this experience to any visitor.

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
