Welcome to The Rocks

The Rocks

The famous Rocks Market opens every Friday and at the weekend it can hold up to more than 200 stalls, which will cater for most lifestyles with designer products from fashion items to locally produced products. You will find almost anything you are looking including great food and fashion.  Soak up the atmosphere as you stroll through the market including its many buskers.  The Rocks, Australia's oldest city, also has some of Sydney’s oldest bars. The Glenmore Hotel's rooftop bar offers some great views of Sydney.

You can also take The Rocks pub tour and discover some of Sydney’s favorite pubs.  Other worthwhile tours to take include the ghost tour, The Rocks walking tour, or take a cruise on the Captain Cook around the harbour.  There is plenty to enjoy at The Rocks.

It is recommended that visitors seek information and a map from The Rocks Visitor's Centre (in George Street) in order to make the most of the neighbourhood and its many attractions, which include museums, view sites, markets, monuments and buildings. From The Rocks it is also possible to access the Pylon Lookout on the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge for an amazing view of the harbour and beyond.

The Australian Dollar (AUD) is divided into 100 cents. Banks and bureaux de change exchange most foreign currencies. Travellers cheques are also welcome everywhere, but banks take a small commission and it is better to take cheques in major currencies (e.g. US dollars or Euros) to avoid additional charges. Credit cards are widely accepted and ATMs are freely available throughout the country. Banking hours are generally 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Thursday, and 9.30am to 5pm on Friday, but some banks offer extended hours and some are open on Saturday mornings.
