2 Overview

European settlers chose to step ashore here in 1788, making The Rocks the birthplace of modern Sydney. Discover the colonial history of this area which has been transformed from a British colony of convicts, soldiers and sailors into a thriving 21st century entertainment precinct right by spectacular Sydney Harbour. Amble along on cobbled laneways with your guide, and marvel at iconic attractions – the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Afterwards, visit La Perouse. It's where Captain Arthur Phillip's First Fleet initially landed in 1788 before deciding on Sydney Cove. The area is named after a French explorer who missed the First Fleet by days. The Aboriginal connection to this land dates back thousands of years and is an important part of its story.
