2 to 3 hours

Discover the oldest parts of Sydney on a 2-hour guided walk through the heart of The Rocks. Your small group tour will be led by Rob, a local Sydneysider with expert knowledge and a passion for his home city. This is not your average history tour, Rob will take you on an incredible journey through Sydney at the turn of the twentieth century. Starting at Circular Quay on the shores of Sydney Harbour, you will visit historical sites, meander through old cobblestone lane ways, stop for a drink at one of Sydney's oldest pubs, and finish at the massive foundations of the awe-inspiring Sydney Harbour Bridge. Rob brings these places to life with stories of government control, social change, and the triumph and defeat of great men and women who forged their lives here. Throughout the tour you will take in spectacular views of Sydney including the harbour, city skyline, Opera House and Harbour Bridge.Meet Rob outside the MCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) in front of the giant arrow on the building - you will know it when you see it! This is on the side facing Circular Quay, looking at the Sydney Ferries and the Opera House. The walk starts from here, weaving through the old buildings and alleys of The Rocks, following the story of the people who lived in Sydney at the end of the 1800's. As Rob describes daily life in Sydney, he shows you old photos of many of these same places from this time. You will hear about major difficulties the people of Sydney had to face, such as the great depression, the arrival of the Plague, widespread demolition and redevelopment in Sydney, the great maritime strike, and the hungry mile. These significant events would bring about great change, and shape the future of Sydney. The walk continues through the Argyle Cut and over to the lesser-known side of The Rocks, and after seeing the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, we stop for a refreshing drink at the nearby Hero of Waterloo - a 175 year old sandstone pub which retains most of it's ori
