About these ratings

Earning its name from the sandstone rocks that line Sydney Harbour, this neighborhood is as quaint as it is cool. What we mean is that its cobblestone streets and 19th-century buildings are oh-so charming, but the shops, pubs, restaurants, and galleries are very fun and very au courant. One TripAdvisor user says, "Don't let the 'oldness' fool you though. The Rocks are filled with amazing restaurants (don't miss Sake...best sushi in town) and cute little book stores to pastry shops."

You'll find this neighborhood just a few blocks west of Circular Quay. For more information on The Rocks, check out its website.
