We used VIP to travel to/from Ripples at Chowder Bay. The best way to travel with attentive and chatty crew, a fast boat and an opportunity to see the sights of Sydney at its very best. Highly recommended!!

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
