Sydney’s early convict days live on in the Rocks, a jumble of cobblestone streets and cul-de-sacs just five minutes from Circular Quay. This area is home to some of Sydney's oldest pubs and draws both visitors and locals with its museums and galleries, lively weekend markets, hotels with harbor views and lively festivals and ghostly tours. Fine dining is available along the Woolloomooloo finger wharf and the wharves of Walsh Bay.
There are more than 70 beaches to enjoy from Bondi to Bronte. Bondi Beach is one of Australia's most famous beaches and well-known worldwide. It has probably featured on more postcards and more television shows and films than any other in Australia. Manly Beach, Coogee Beach and Palm Beach are quite popular for both tourist and locals.
