Millers Point and Walsh Bay start with a convict history but soon flourish as an important portside village. Merchants lived beside soldiers, coal lumpers, nuns, publicans and working men’s families.

Today, Walsh Bay’s history is revealed once again in the newly readapted wharves and storehouses providing housing with a harbourside view. PR firms, theatres, cafes and apartments exist within the old workingman’s paradise, steep stairways, gantries and hoists.

We invite you to come with our guide from The Rocks to the Bay as we discover the changing nature of this fascinating historic precinct.
