I get it that it's historic, and maybe it was just a gloomy Sunday evening, but this just seemed like a ghost town of what is old town. Not much going on here imho and I'd take my time somewhere more interesting.

A lovely walk around the historic Rocks area. Friday food market was a bonus - delicious wraps, plenty of seating. A special shout out to the lovely Dux Candle store, it's beautiful and the lady owner is so passionate and knowledgeable about her handmade products.
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
weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
Not in the Rocks but a great boutique hotel (more like an Inn), Is Simpson’s of Potts Point . This is a historic Victorian mansion on a tree-lined street with about 12 rooms, and is a 20-minute walk to the Rocks... More
Not in the Rocks but a great boutique hotel (more like an Inn), Is Simpson’s of Potts Point . This is a historic Victorian mansion on a tree-lined street with about 12 rooms, and is a 20-minute walk to the Rocks via the lovely harbor, with possible side trip through the beautiful Botanic Gardens. Potts Point has many great restaurants and cafes within walking distance of Simpsons. We loved our stay at Simpsons and would highly recommend it if you’re looking for intimate charm. The staff are great at recommending things to do in Sydney as well. Breakfast is included with your stay. Have a great trip!
