We're not serious foodies but wanted to try Quay after hearing all the hype. We were both left underwhelmed. The food is good but no better than you would find at many other quality restaurants. What surprised me most though (in a bad way) was...More

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
