The Rocks Markets
The Rocks market is open on Saturdays and Sundays and the perfect place to shop local goods with the Sydney Harbour Bridge as your backdrop. From handmade jewellery to art, fresh produce + many food stalls to eat your way through, head over to Argyle & George Street and wander the cobble stone streets of this open-air market.
Dawes Point Park
Dawes point park is located directly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge & is undeniably one of Sydney’s top picturesque locations. The park looks out on the harbour to the north-east and east as well as directly across the waters to Milson Point, Lavender Bay and Luna Park. Pack yourself a picnic & find a nice spot on the grassy hill to enjoy. Plus, you might find yourself in the background of a wedding too!
Museum of Contemporary Art
For those looking for a bit of culture, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art. Located only a short walk from the ferry wharf, the museum is full of cutting-edge Australian and international modern art. They always have a mix of incredible exhibitions that are both free and engaging. Plus, the view from the top floor is incredible!
Cadmans Cottage is the oldest building in The Rocks and the third oldest building in Sydney. The cottage was built by convict workers in 1816 and formed part of the government dockyard at The Rocks at the time. Today, the cottage is used as the home for the Sydney Harbour National Parks information centre and can be viewed by the public. Go explore this little bit of Australian history!
