Alright, let’s get to know Sydney a little better – what do you say?
Wind your way through the back alleyways, up the steps and back in time to uncover the stories and people who shaped this fledgling colony. Hear all about Sydney’s oldest pubs, the first breweries, amazing convict tales, and a rebellion over the most precious drink of all… rum!
As Australia’s first neighbourhood, the Rocks was literally cut from the sandstone cliffs that rise above Sydney Harbour. On this Sydney walking tour, we’ll carve out a narrative of this neighbourhood’s history, starting with the convicts that were forced to settle here and their amazing tales of survival and entrepreneurship.
Along the way on this Sydney Rocks tour we’ll make pit stops at some classic local spots, starting off with a wine tasting in the heart of the Rocks and a lesson in wine appreciation and the local industry. From there, we’ll explore the once seedy back alleyways, which today are very safe and feature many great photo opportunities.
Next up, you’ll take a break from all that walking and relax over dinner (gourmet burger or vegetarian option included) with a matched craft beer at a historic pub.
Fuelled up, we’ll delve deeper into some of the most unique and off-the-beaten-track parts of the Rocks. Not only will you get to work off your meal and hear more intriguing historical stories, but we’ll also visit an archaeological site like no other in Australia, before hunkering down to enjoy one last beer together.
