Expect fascinating history, delivered with energy and insight on a walking exploration of Sydney's birthplace: The Rocks. Together your group will uncover the scallywag stories of convicts, soldiers, rum and rebellions.
Once upon a time a bizarre colonial experiment took place on the rocky shores of a forested cove. 15,000-miles from home, Britain's banished thieves would be locked in a jail whose walls were made of ocean, bush, hunger and fear.
Defying the odds, this shanty camp would clutch to life on the banks of a tiny stream. Gardens were grown, rum was traded and homes were carved into the sandstone cliffs.
Centuries changed, legends grew, scallywag Sydney was born. Her squalid secrets etched into the very rocks from which she was built.
