Sydney’s heritage setting for a contemporary City

Successfully combining a colourful history with a warm ambience and Australian character, The Rocks contains many beautifully restored buildings from Sydney’s early days as a colonial town. Much of The Rocks comprises of a maze of original, cobblestone lanes that lead to over 170 shops, cafes and restaurants. Explore shops carrying everything from Australian design in fashion, art, craft and jewellery to international labels and unique collectables and souvenirs. You can pick up presents from the lively weekend Rocks Markets.
The Rocks is the ideal place to go for a superb dining experience as it has a number of restaurants run by some of Sydney’s best chefs. Try bel mondo, Doyles, The Waterfront, Quay, Rockpool, Sailor’s Thai or any of the restaurants in the newly refurbished Overseas Passenger Terminal. If you’re more in the mood for a snack or light meal eat at one of the numerous casual cafés, restaurants or historic pubs, many of which have pretty garden courtyards.
