What can you expect to do in The Rocks?

It is a place to have a late breakfast, a leisurely lunch or a five-star dinner while gazing over the iconic Sydney Harbour. The Rocks has over fifty cafes, restaurants and hotels “to spoil yourself, and your appetite”. Some of the most notable drinking and dining options include Altitude Restaurant and Blue Bar on Level 36, with sprawling views of the Sydney Harbour and skyline from high above the city.
There are also several old-school Italian pizzerias and traditional pasta menus along with a handful of small cafes for a midmorning or midafternoon coffee and pastry.

There is something for even the pickiest, most difficult-to-please palettes.
- Learn & Explore: Sydney and The Rocks District were the first settling places of European settlers in Australia. As such, it is steeped with history and timeless opportunity to learn about the evolving culture that makes up the city and Australia as a whole.
While much of Sydney’s growth occurred in the late twentieth century, many of the buildings and public spaces established in the eighteenth and nineteenth century still remain intact in The Rocks, offering an authentic look into Sydney’s past. Book a walking tour, visit any of the museums including the Susannah Place Museum or the S.H Ervin Gallery or just stroll the street on your own and take in the historic architecture.
- Shop: The Rocks shopping is some of the most unique in Sydney, offering opportunity for souvenirs you have never seen anywhere else, handmade or produced by locals. The Rocks values “markets over malls, fashion over fads. It’s where you can actually meet the designer and not just see their name in neon lights.”
It is truly a shopping experience you will never forget. Browse handmade beauty product stores, contemporary jewelry galleries and genuine leather goods. Or take home a small-batch made cosmetic product, something personal for the home or even a hand-died piece of denim.
The opportunities go on; check out Gifts at the Rocks for a one-of-a-kind souvenir for you or friends back home or try your hand at Mancuso Diamonds for something that will only grow in value as it ages with you. The Rocks shopping will not offer your typical designer goods or name-brand shopping malls; instead enjoy something different and personal from The Rocks Shops.
- Browse the Markets: The Rocks Markets, 10am-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays, offers even more special goods, most handmade. Since most days the weather in Australia is beautiful, it only makes sense to take advantage and host open-air markets for visitors to stroll through.
Take in the local culture and handmade artwork as you leisurely hop from booth-to-booth, speaking with the artists and sellers, getting to know the real Sydney, up-close and personal. It is rare to find so many original pieces of artwork, home and body products in one place.
