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 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.

I booked 10 months in advance to secure a disability access room. On arrival it was so small that in order to get in the luggage holder had to be folded up, meaning the luggage had to lay on the floor making it inaccessible to any wheelchair bound person. Dinner in the hotels

We spent more than 270 dollars per night. But they couldn’t extend our check out time till 2.00 pm. What a bad policy these hotels practice. Just because of one hour they loose their valuable customer. Anyway this is very convenient place to visit Sydney opera house.
