Come here to try the Kangaroo Pizza! It was right by the bridge climb and it was actually really great and enjoyable! The pub was fun and the staff was friendly. We actually ordered half kangaroo and half emu pizza!

The hotel deserves its name. Old and nice. The room didn't have its own bathroom, but that was the only negative point. The service is indeed fantastic. Have you been often offered a bottle of wine when asked to switch tables so that a larger group can be accommodated all together in a pub? The hotel is also very well...

I had my worst pizza almost 20 years ago in Venice when a delegation of Foreign Direct Investors visiting one of my Italian offices had insisted to have lunch with a view on the Canale Grande! The waiter had spontaneously responded by suggesting a couple of pizzeria's names in the neighboring city of Mestre when asked at the end of...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review after your visit to the hotel, and my apologies that the experience was not to the standards we expect. If you could please send me details of the pizza you ordered at mhiggins@australianheritagehotel.com then I will look into why the food on that day was so below par. I'm glad that...

We have been to this place several times. Loved the kangaroo pizza a must try. Right by the bridge climb and the little row of original houses - Susannah Place Museum - well worth a visit. Cool water on the bar is most welcome on hot days

We stopped at The Australian for Saturday lunch while touring The Rocks. The service was FANTASTIC. Every waiter who served us was extremely friendly and happy to help. There were a couple of mishaps - the rose was stale and our order was confused with another - but when we raised these with the staff, they were super friendly and...

We had dinner at the Australian a packed Friday night. The service was fast and our pizza was great. We had the Coat of Arms. Australia's coat of arms has both emu and kangaroo on it and so does this excellent pizza! The crowd was great and we sat next to some Sydneysiders who were a lot of fun. Very...

We live in North Sydney so frequent the city daily for work and pleasure. If we come to the city on the weekend, we love to pop by here for a cheeky one-or-two during the day if we are in The Rocks. Pizza's are delicious, we have always gotten an outdoor seat during the weekend daytime and it's just a...

There is a very visible, and somewhat raucous, pub on the ground floor of this corner hotel in The Rocks area adjacent to Sydney Harbour Bridge. The pub & restaurant is purported to have excellent pizza, with toppings available that are indigenous and adventurous. So, on our way back to Shangri-La after busy day on the water, we stopped by....

The people are nice enough, and this is definitely an authentic heritage hotel, so if you're looking to experience that, go for it! To me, the lack of Air Conditioning, dirty carpets, old beds & bedding (I'm pretty sure there was a blood stain in mine), it's definitely towards the budget-end of the market. It's also a shared-facility for toilets...

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
