Our guide Sally made this tour truly excellent, taking us through the 150 years these buildings were occupied and introducing us to the history of The Rocks as an area and Sydney in general. Well worth the $12 entry for a tour.

A fascinating trip through time in the historic houses of Susannah Place from the late 1800s through to the 1960s. Excellent guide and at just on an hour was well worth it. Highly recommend it to anyone.

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
