Sydney Harbour and The Rocks Hotels
With so many amazing attractions in one place, it’s easy to see why The Rocks and Sydney Harbour are so popular with tourists. From the charming laneways of The Rocks telling the story of Sydney’s past, to the iconic Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, to the natural beauty of the Royal Botanic Gardens – a visit to Sydney Harbour and The Rocks is not to be missed.
Visitors wanting to get a feel for the area can take one of the many tours on offer. Take a ferry to see more of the harbour – or take a jetboat ride to get the blood pumping! Stay on dry land with a walking or cycling tour, take a convict tour to learn more about Sydney’s past, learn the art of photography on a photography tour, or wet your whistle on a pub tour.
Absorb some culture at the Art Gallery of NSW or at one of the many art galleries and museums at The Rocks. Observe the skies at the Sydney Observatory, or get a different view from one the area’s lookouts and parks, such as First Fleet Park, Foundation Park and Dawes Point, or even from the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge.
An area simply packed with restaurants, bars, shops and attractions, Sydney Harbour and The Rocks is the ideal choice for visitors to Sydney, with numerous accommodation options available. The rest of Sydney and its surrounds are easily accessible by ferry, bus, train and tram, but with so much on the doorstep, many visitors find it difficult to leave.
