Take a historic local tour through inner Sydney to discover the suburb that jail birds build. The Rocks is a picturesque waterfront district on the edge of Sydney Harbour dating back to the 1788. This tour will take you through the winding back alleys that is the foundation of the city.
Lead by your local guide Scott you’ll take in the history of what it was like to be sent to one of the furthermost reaches of the globe. Ghost stories and legends were made in these streets.
The narrow lanes are now home to street markets, cafes and art galleries which are a great place to mingle with the locals and pick up some souvenirs for the trip home. Sitting at the base of the Harbour Bridge you’ll take in the views of the bridge and the Sydney Opera House.
The tour takes in all of the sights and history of the district while learning a bit about Australia’s history as an outpost of the British empire. Starting and ending in beautiful Circular Quay it’s a great way to see a part of Australia’s story.
About your guide:
Scott will be your guide through Sydney’s back alleyways. He’s a well seasoned traveller who has been living in Sydney for three years now. Prior to Verramente he worked in finance and tech roles but his passion for travel was too much of a pull. He often takes this walk with his wife and two puppies and loves to share the view with other travellers – he also enjoys an drink or two.
