Walk through History

Home > Sydney > Walks
Published November 23rd 2009
You don’t need to be a historian to discover and enjoy an adventure into Sydney’s historical past. Sydney is full of magnificent old buildings, parks and landmarks containing intriguing stories from early colonial days to the present. Any weekend with good weather can be an excellent time to take a walk through the history found in Sydney’s streets.

The City of Sydney History Program has prepared a number of brochures with all the information you need to take a self-guided history walk through Sydney. The brochures can be obtained from the City of Sydney Council locations
or one of their libraries or easily downloaded from here.

Some of the walks include:
Sydney Heritage Walk (includes 20 historic sites)
The Rock and Roll Walk of Fame (Oxford Street)
Colony (Millers Point and The Rocks)
Community (Town Hall, around Chinatown and the city to Hyde Park)
Commerce (St James Station to the QVB)
The full list can be found here.

Most walks take between 1 and 2 hours but if you take your time you can stop off at one of the many eateries around the city for a bite to eat. If you have the time there will also be plenty of places to do a spot of shopping along the way.
