The Rocks seems to get more popular every year. And for good reason. Some of Sydney's best pubs are in this historically significant precinct.
It is easy to access via Circular Quay wharf, or from Wynyard bus station, and the choice of eateries and drinkeries is endless.
One usually pays a premium on dining and drinks there, but if you do a bit of bar-hopping you can usually find some special deals or happy hours. There are a couple of suggested pub crawls for the area, which for the daring are always great fun.
