Discover and explore Sydney's heritage village with The Rocks Walking Tours. Our tours are conducted by friendly and enthusiastic guides who, by relating the many tales of our colourful past, capture and hold the visitor's imagination. Let us show you some of Sydney's earliest buildings, shops old and new, homes of the 'well-to-do' and the quaint cottages of the working class. Still to be seen today are the pubs and hotels, once frequented by the locals and sailors alike and the haunts of larrikins and rogues. The many historic streets, narrow alleyways, cobbled lanes, sandstone steps and beautiful churches combine to weave a rich tapestry of life in the past and present times. Our exclusive tour service within The Rocks conducts daily tours from our office at 23 Playfair Street, The Rocks. The Rocks Walking Tours have been established since 1978 and are the only resident daily walking tour operating exclusive 90 minute regular tours.

Join your tour at The Rocks Walking Tours office located at Shop 5 - Clocktower Square, Corner of Argyle and Harrington Streets, The Rocks to commence a 90 minute The Rocks Walking tour. There is no better way to get up close and personal with the living history and heritage of Sydney than on foot. Hear lively tales from a colourful past while enjoying the ambience of a vibrant present. Hear how The Rocks was inhabited by the First Fleet of convicts arriving as they did into Sydney Cove in 1788 thus impacting forever on the local Indigenous people's way of life. Stories unfold with many rich accounts of the antics of sailors, larrikins and rogues as they roamed the rugged rocks. Still to be seen today are the storehouses, public and working class cottages from the time when this place took on all of the characteristics of the dockside. There is approximately 2 kilometres of walking covered at a leisurely pace. Tour concludes approximately 90 minutes after commencement, at the Clocktower.
