Where to stay in The Rocks

Exploring The Rocks

The Rocks is the seed from which the sprawling city of Sydney, and the entirety of modern Australia, grew - being the spot where European settlers first landed. The British flag was hoisted at Circular Quay in 1788, and you can revisit the spot to watch mighty cruise ships docking, while munching on fresh fish and chips. The sound of vibrating didgeridoo notes, and calling gulls, fills the air around the Quay, and provides a gentle soundtrack as you enjoy a wide panoramic of the harbor. More views, which are quite literally out of this world, are waiting at the copper-domed Sydney Observatory.

Visit at night to take a tour of the facility, and spot Saturn’s majestic rings, as you look through a super-powered telescope. Come back down to earth to experience The Rocks at its liveliest, by heading to the animated markets, which spring up at the weekend. There’s something refreshing about this relaxed way of doing business, especially when contrasted to the shiny skyscrapers that tower in the background. Pick up everything from hand knitted scarves, to colorful daubings of the harbor, all for a great price.

- Circular Quay


Flanking the northern edge of Sydney Central Business District (CBD), Circular Quay is more than just a ferry and cruise ship docking port. It’s where tourism meets entertainment, as the area boasts ferry quays, cafés, restaurants, and exciting walkways filled with street performers. It is also one of Sydney’s most important transport hubs, with large bus and rail stations accompanying the quays. Several important landmarks are located within and close to Circular Quay, including the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) and The Rocks.


- Sydney Opera House


One of the most iconic landmarks both in Sydney and Australia, the Sydney Opera House is not to be missed. This architectural marvel was constructed in 1973 by the famous Danish architect Jorn Utzon and was granted World Heritage status by UNESCO in 2007. More than seven million visitors come here annually, making it one of the world’s most sought-after attractions.
