This is clearly a very historic building and fortunate this old stone cottage has been retained There was some work underway but this could be better presented and could be quite a popular place for tourists interested in the history. Worth a quick visit.

From death row to harbour master! The historic building is tucked away across the road from the cruise ship terminal. The history is clearly spelled out so you don't really need a guide

Bravo Sydney for keeping this gem protected. Worth a look. It was not open to the public but there was informational signage that could use some updating. Next to the museum and across from the ship terminal.

Cadmans Cottage is right next to the Overseas Passenger Terminal so it is always crowded with cruise passengers. The house is full of history but simple in outlook.

We visited Cadman's cottage as a part of a night tour. It was very interesting building with some cool stories that I really enjoyed our visit.

We strolled down here after visiting the Rocks Discovery Museum. It made me smile that behind the oldest house in Sydney there was an ocean going liner of some size! A real sense of Sydney’s history here.

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
