Find all the little walks, lanes and stairways around the rocks for memorable tour of this historic area. The nurses walk is just that. Find the hidden markets for some lunch too.

There are walks you pay for but we just walked and looked at the site's, to us not worth paying for, if you go into the information place not far from the walk, you can pick up a leaflet on historic walks.

The nurses walk winds through the streets and stairs of the Rock, and if someone thinks this is the route the nurses used to go to the hospital, they're wrong. In 1979 the Sydney Cove Redevelopment Authority appointed this path for the memory and respect...More

Nurse's walk is a small lane just adjacent to the Rocks in Sydney, around the site of the first medical facilities in the infant town. Apart from being a short cut down to Circular Quay, it has interesting information around the walls of the lane....More

Neat thing about this area is the little "shortcuts" in back ally's that used to be haunted by gangs in the old days to fleece the unwary. Tiny little shops tucked in all sorts of spaces.......another way to see the rock area.

Great way to take in some of the history of the Rocks. Take a guided tour and visit the museum in the Rocks.

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and

neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
