The Rocks is the birthplace of Sydney and has been transformed into a tourist precinct since 1970. Located in the shore of the bustling Sydney Harbour, , the Rocks houses ancient colonial buildings which are now transformed into bars, restaurants, galleries and souvenir shops. The Cadman`s Cottage next to the Sydney Visitor Centre is a historic residential building dating back to 1845. Although the Rocks is not large, there are quite a lot of activities. If you want to learn more about the early history of Sydney, you can take a ghost tour around the Rocks, walk through the alleys illuminated by lanterns, and listen to the legendary stories.
