“We arrived at 7:30am, we didn’t expect to get a room that early. However they let us shower, gave us vast amounts of coffee to keep us awake after our long journey, and were full of advice. To arrive in Australia and be treated so well set the whole mood for our holiday, “The Harbour Rocks” rocks in our opinion, a great way to start Australia.”
