"As the site where the first European settlers stepped off the boat, the Rocks’ rich history is begging to be explored. Step back in time as your guide regales you with tales of the birth of Sydney, through to when notorious gangs ruled the streets and to more recent times and the war to save this distinctive neighbourhood from property developers. Wander cobblestone streets, passing by some of Australia’s oldest pubs and chic modern day cafes, and marvel at the glimpses of some of the city’s most iconic sites including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Museum of Contemporary Art Australia."
