History and modern combine in the Rocks. This rustic and iconic part of Sydney is one of the first neighborhoods of Sydney, created back when the first settlers came in 1788. Every nook and corner is bustling with history and modern energy. Embraced by the modern hip culture, many old houses have been adapted into bars, street food is iconic, and rustic and weekend markets are open for anyone. IF you wish to travel back in time a bit and keep all the benefits of modern life, then this is just the part of Sydney for you.
2. Sail thru the Harbor and around the Opera
There has yet to be a guide that doesn’t include the famous Sydney Opera House. Known for its stellar and breathtaking pictures taken on New Year eve, as it comes first here, to its contribution to Australian and
world culture, this architectural marvel is a sight to see and remember for a lifetime. Of course, while it is the crowning jewel of the bay area, its surroundings should not be ignored, as well. To list some are Harbor Bridge, The Quay, and Fort Denison. These three items can easily fill one or two days and make you want to return for more.
