So much history about the lives of the working class during Sydney’s early times. The guides are so great and are full of knowledge. Definitely worth a visit!

We enjoyed our one-hour tour of the 4 connected homes of working-class inhabitants of The Rocks neighborhood. An interesting glimpse into original homes based on oral histories of the residents or their descendants. Not a must see, but worth a visit if you have time...More

Our guide Sally made this tour truly excellent, taking us through the 150 years these buildings were occupied and introducing us to the history of The Rocks as an area and Sydney in general. Well worth the $12 entry for a tour.

Built in 1844 by Irish immigrants. This museum tells the story of hardworking families, who lived in the Rocks area.

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
