There is no better way to get up close and personal with the living history and heritage of Sydney than on foot with Sydney’s foremost team of friendly and enthusiastic guides at The Rocks Walking Tours.
The Rocks may be Sydney’s oldest neighbourhood but it’s lost none of its zest for life.
The stories are alive in the sandstone!
Let our experienced guides entertain you with these lively tales from our colourful Past while enjoying the ambience of our vibrant Present.
The Rocks Walking Tours has long been introducing travellers and locals alike to the fascinating story of this unique place in Sydney’s history.
Hear how The Rocks was inhabited by that First Fleet of convicts arriving as they did into Sydney Cove in 1788 thus impacting forever on the local Indigenous people’s way of life.
Up onto the rocky land that human cargo was disgorged and so began the British Australian story.
We would delight in sharing with you this story of triumph over tragedy and introduce the characters from this early convict settlement era.
The story unfolds with many rich accounts of the antics of sailors, larrikins and rogues as they roamed the rugged rocks seeking the haunts of entertainment and friendly company.
Still to be seen today are the storehouses, pubs and working class cottages from the time when this place took on all of the characteristics of a dockside area and a disease ridden slum.
Today, The Rocks is renowned for having the oldest streets in Sydney which are dotted with beautifully restored nineteenth century buildings.
Our groups weave their way through hidden narrow alleyways, along charming cobbled lanes and into shady courtyards, linger by quaint terrace cottages and visit a gothic church. These enjoyable aspects of a visit to The Rocks could be easily overlooked by the casual unguided visitor.
Our exclusive tour service within The Rocks conducts Daily Tours and aims to provide a memorable walking tour experience for all visitors to Sydney.
