The Rocks in Sydney is considered as the birthplace of modern Sydney, Australia. It is a part of the city that is now one of its busiest areas. The area was originally founded by European settlers, as it was the area they stepped ashore back in the 18th century. Today, the area is normally busy with tourists and locals who both flock to its market, bars, restaurants and pop up shops.
The closest ferry and train stations are at ‘Circular Quay’ which are both a short walk away from The Rocks. If travelling by car, there are a number of car parks in the area, these are reasonably priced. If travelling by bus, get on any bus heading for ‘Bridge Street’.
