The Rocks (Sydney)

Suburb

The Rocks precinct is the historic site of Sydney’s first European settlement. Encompassing Circular Quay, the area bursts with a colourful history dating back to convict days and is a maze of sandstone lanes, cul-de-sacs and courtyards, jam-packed with shops, warehouses and terraces that were built in the early 19th century. While The Rocks was once home to Sydney’s dockworkers and stevedores, it’s now a magnet for international visitors, who flock to its many shops, boutiques, markets, pubs and restaurants.

As a creative and cultural arts hub, a visit to The Rocks must include the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Argyle Gallery and The Rocks Discovery Museum.
