This quaint (though expensive) neighborhood is known as the birthplace of Sydney because it is where British settlers first landed in 1788.
Such historical significance is noticeable and marketed throughout the town via landmarks such as the Sydney Observatory (the colony's first windmill) and
Cadman's Cottage (Sydney's oldest building that was built in 1816).
The great thing about the rocks is that its geographical layout is pedestrian-friendly and aesthetically pleasing with its cobblestone streets, winding roads, and sandstone cottages.
How to get to The Rocks: CityRail or ferry Circular Quay.
