How Do We Get There?

Here is some helpful information so as to assist you in locating our Office and the departure point for our Daily Tours:

By Foot:

The best idea would be to make you way to George Street, which runs north-south the distance of the City of Sydney and is the best most direct approach into the area.

Once in The Rocks, the first intersection you will come across is George and Argyle Streets, turn right into Argyle staying on the
right hand side where you will come across Harrington Street and a pedestrian crossing that will deliver you to the entrance of
Clocktower Square. Our office can be found on the ground floor inside the centre on your right

By Public Transport:

If you are concerned about the possible walking distance then you may like to consider catching a Public Bus, either # 431 which comes from Glebe down George Street to The Rocks or # 433 which comes from Balmain down George Street to The Rocks. Most bus driver should be happy to assist in letting you know when you should alight from the bus once in The Rocks, if you are unsure.

The Rocks area is well serviced by all modes of Public Transport (buses, ferries and trains) with Circular Quay only a leisurely 10 minute stroll to our offices.

What to Wear

So as to ensure you have an enjoyable experience on our tour it always pays to be prepared, so we suggest wearing comfy shoes, bring a bottle of water, and pack all weather gear appropriate to the day as in an umbrella/ raincoat or hat/ sunscreen.

What happens if it rains?

Our tours are conducted in all weather; rain or shine.

For your comfort, umbrellas are provided for use whilst on the tour if the day becomes inclement.

How strenuous is the tour?

Our tours are conducted at a relaxed and easy pace, with consideration given to any participant’s special needs.

The distance covered is approximately two kilometres, and this leisurely stroll pauses often to take in many of the significant sites and to recount interesting facts about the area.

As it is a heritage area, we do encounter a few flights of stairs (please refer below regarding Wheelchair & Pram Access) and some uneven pathways. If you have any concerns regarding your ability to undertake our tour due to medical reasons or your level of fitness, please inform our guide prior the tour’s departure so we can ascertain whether this activity would be suitable.

Would the tour be suitable for wheelchairs/ prams?

Tours are conducted with a slightly modified route so as to be wheelchair/ pram friendly; we kindly ask if we can be made aware of this at the time of booking or, if possible, prior to the tour’s departure.

What language are the tours conducted in?

All our tours are conducted in English; but interpreters accompanying non-English speaking visitors are welcome to join our tour so as to translate.
