The history of Sydney is unique and its stories fascinating. It is a history full of contrasts; built on hardship, violence and hope and set in one of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable.
To experience it, meet your guide next to the Statue of Queen Victoria (corner Druitt St/George St) and begin your discovery of historic Sydney.
Learn the fascinating story of how Sydney transformed itself from a convict settlement into a thriving metropolis in just over 200 years. You will visit the hidden laneways of the historic ‘Rocks’ area, Sydney’s birthplace.
