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.
If visiting Sydney its a must that you go to Circular quay. Go by ferry to Manly or Taronga Park Zoo. Its wonderful to have a ferry ride and feel the breeze blowing on your face. The quey has a great food court with such a variety of foods. Experience the atmosphere of the old pubs and walk to the...
We have visited Susannah Place Museum twice and enjoyed it very much both times. It is interesting to hear about the history of the place (built in the 1840s) and hear about the various residents of the house. The last resident lived in the house in 1990 (and it is hard to imagine living in the home that recently due...
My husband, son and I enjoyed learning more about the historical Rocks area of Sydney. The building is very old and contains interesting artifacts such as china dishes and other house hold items. There are 5 interesting documentaries about life in the Rocks which were about 5 to 10 minutes in length.
The museum is well designed with an easy flow and elevator access. I was met on the second floor by a young woman that invited me to a talk about one of the artists and his work that was on display. It ended up being a private talk since I was the only one at that time. She made the...
This church is renowned in Sydney. It is a historical place. It was built in the 1840s.
The altar is attractive with its imposing high altar and its polished brass and the huge cross at the top.
Its stained glass windows are attractive as well. The wooden benches are comfortable. The Christmas tree was still up with its nativity scene....
My husband and I visited on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, a beautifully appointed dining room, delicious food and delightful staff, especially the young lady who served us, Nung Nguyen. I am returning in July with some lady friends who I know will enjoy the experience.
We had the most delicious lunch here on a cool but sunny day. So much better than the Opera bar as here you don't have to deal with all those seagulls. The service was excellent - so friendly and the food was divine. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant as its perfectly positioned at Circular Quay for peopel watching too.
Spotted this cafe in the rocks, not far from the cruising terminal. Had a devonshire tea, my god the homemade scones were lovely and fresh. You can sit outside, downstairs or upstairs. The whole best has a wonderful tea theme, it's definitely worth visiting and sitting down for a cuppa, brunch or lunch.

Have stayed before and would go again. Suite ready before normal checkin time. Rooms getting a bit tired but still nice and clean. Pool on the 24th floor always a favourite. Only problem was the overwhelmed breakfast. We usually don’t opt for breakfast in hotels but stayed in for one weekend morning of our stay. The food was not replenished...
"Vivid one night stay at the Shangri-La hotel...a treat!!"
reviewed 2 days ago by Kathy S
My daughter and I spent a one night stay last week at the Shangri-La and were treated
to an amazing view from the Horizon Level to the Vivid Lights beyond, capturing the
Opera house, Luna park, the harbour bridge. As the weather was cold and wet and we
were unable to go for a walk, the view was spectacular from...
Have stayed here three times now. Hotel is in great location and is close to the rocks and the cruise terminal. Would stay again. Rooms are clean and they are very quiet. We stayed for vivid and they had a temporary rooftop bar setup so we could see the lights come on. It was very nice from the roof. Customer...
Hotel needs a lift to upper floors. Hotel is good but because of no lift to upper floors it makes the hotel less enjoyable and less desirable to venture out. Location good for the Rocks and Quay areas.
