The Rocks located near Circular Quay form Sydney’s oldest residential precinct dating back to 1788 and is also home to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Despite generations of change, traces of early convict settlements can still be found in pubs and churches, archaeological digs and houses all evoke memories of past lives and ways.
The city’s oldest building, Cadman’s Cottage (circa1816), is located here, along with the Argyle Cut, excavated by convicts in the 1840s.
Circular Quay, the city of Sydney's ferry hub, is a hive of activity both day and night and only a short distance from the Rocks. Circular Quay is also home of the Sydney Opera House which is the most well known landmark in Australia and is also part of the backdrop from the infamous New Years Eve fireworks held each year.
