Join Sydney’s Original Walking Tour, established 1978, as the professional guides take you on a 90-minute leisurely walk through Sydney’s colonial district, The Rocks.
Voucher is valid until 25 October 2025
Hear the story of Sydney’s convict past as you stroll along the shoreline of Sydney Harbour with views of the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, past Cadman’s Cottage, Sydney’s oldest cottage built 1816, Campbell’s Cove and the hidden Foundation Park.
Wander down hidden alleyways, into shady courtyards, along cobbled laneways as you hear the story of Australia’s first British settlement. Be amazed with stories of The First Fleet 1788, Nurses Walk, The Rum Rebellion 1808, the Argyle Cut 1840, Suez Canal, the plague 1900, the Harbour Bridge 1920’s, the diabolical 1970’s plan to demolish The Rocks and the Green Bans that saved it. And of course, the characters and rogues who called it home.
Today, The Rocks is renowned for having the oldest streets in Sydney, dotted with beautifully restored nineteenth century buildings.
