The Indigenous Cadigal people occupied the cape and surrounding shoreline for a long time. After some time, The Rocks grew from an open-air gaol to an energetic village. Its rich history-composed of many tales of rough gangs and ‘shanghaied' sailors, can still be outlined through the remaining buildings from the last two hundred years.

Today these were renovated to an assortment of businesses such as one-of-a-kind shops, specialty restaurants, and art galleries that presents new as well as established artists. The Rocks is a distinctive Australian quarter, an exciting place where you can take a tour in the Cadman's Cottage, eat in fine restaurants situated in some of the historical buildings in Sydney, or check out boutiques and galleries in the very place where Australia's European settlement started.
