The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest 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 “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.

I wasn't all that impressed. The food was ok, but we were jammed in on the footpath tables. Took forever to get served, and each time I requested a wine, they went to the cellar and the answer was 'no'. I was expecting a bit more. Once is enough. There are far better Pubs in the

Our tour guide recommended trying the Coat of Arms pizza at the Australian to get a chance to try Kangaroo and Emu in one dish. That seemed worth the trip, since it was near our hotel. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was pretty busy. We found a table outside, which

"It is what it is, a bed and breakfast in a Heritage pub, with shared facilities and expensive food. Cheaper and nicer at the YWCA"
"All I can say is we got as advertised."
"Not sure, I just went to the Restaurant"
"Rooms on the Gloucester Street side are probably quieter, but noise did not keep us awake."
"room 5 was just right."
