The Rocks

The Rocks in New South Wales

The Rocks is one of the most-visited parts of Sydney. Nestled at the foot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and on the western shores of Sydney Cove, The Rocks is the foundation place of Sydney and Australia, and of enormous historical significance. It is often described as "Sydney's outdoors museum". Situated on the shores of Sydney Harbour, this is one of the city's most dynamic shopping, dining and entertainment areas. It has been restored to its earlier charm of cobblestone streets and historic buildings, just as it used to be the site of the first European settlement in Australia. The unique shops, cafes, restaurants, and the Rocks Market held every Saturday and Sunday offers visitors a huge variety of activities to choose from.
