When Rum Ran the Rocks Sydney Walking Tour with Aussie Drinks

Love this tour. I was the only person booked and Lucy, tour guide, was just lovely. I did not at anytime feel like it was too much to do the tour just for me. So worthwhile and interesting. Shoutout to Lucy for being so fabulous ...Amanda K., – See more reviews

Wind your way through the back alleyways, up the steps and back in time to uncover the stories and people who shaped this fledgling colony. Hear all about Sydney's oldest pubs, the first breweries, amazing convict tales, and a rebellion over the most precious drink of all...rum!

As Australia's first neighborhood, the Rocks was literally cut from the sandstone cliffs that rise above Sydney Harbour. On this Sydney walking tour, carve out a narrative of this neighborhood's history, starting with the convicts that were forced to settle here and their amazing tales of survival and entrepreneurship.

Along the way, make pit stops at some classic local pubs in the heart of the Rocks. From there, explore the once seedy back alleyways, which today are very safe, of course, but still feature many great photo opportunities.

After a drink at another historical pub, delve deeper into some of the unique and most off-the-beaten-track parts of the Rocks as we visit an archaeological site like no other in Australia. Finish up our Sydney tour by enjoying one last beer back near where the tour began.
