Discover the architecture and history of the historic harbourside suburb The Rocks. The Rocks tour will be taking place this Saturday 11 August.
On this unique two-hour walking tour of Sydney’s oldest suburb, you'll discover Sydney’s past, present and future!
Stroll with us through the hilly terrain and see how heritage and contemporary architecture co-exists in harmony. Discover the marks left on the district by the plague of 1900 and by major infrastructure projects such as the wharves and the Harbour Bridge.
We will also witness the metamorphosis of the area into new 21st century residential, commercial, recreational and cultural uses after the port facilities moved away in both Walsh Bay and Barangaroo. See how Barangaroo has been developed and hear about how the architecture shapes the foreshores of the city of Sydney.
