The Rocks Walking Tours

Discover and explore Sydney’s heritage village with The Rocks Walking Tours. Our tours are conducted by friendly and enthusiastic guides who, by relating the many tales of our colourful past, capture and hold the visitor’s imagination.

Let us show you some of Sydney’s earliest buildings, shops old and new, homes of the ‘well-to-do’ and the quaint cottages of the working class. Still to be seen today are the pubs and hotels, once frequented by the locals and sailors alike and the haunts of larrikins and rogues.

The many historic streets, narrow alleyways, cobbled lanes, sandstone steps and beautiful churches combine to weave a rich tapestry of life in the past and present times.
