Located on Sydney Cove opposite Sydney Opera House, The Rocks district is the focus of visitor activity in the city. In 1778, the first convict settlement was established here, on the sandstone rocks. There are many attractions, enough to fill an entire day. The area contains many attractive colonial buildings, which house galleries, eateries and inviting shops. At the weekends musical entertainment is found throughout the neighbourhood and a bustling street market fills the main plaza.
