What You'll Do

Come on an all-inclusive journey to Sydney's oldest pubs as you wander through Australia’s oldest neighbourhood, The Rocks.

Starting point is at the Harts Pub – Corner of Essex & Gloucester Street and will end at the Lord Nelson Hotel.
On our historic pub tour, a passionate local guide will escort you, on foot through Australia’s oldest neighbourhood, The Rocks, visiting 4 heritage pubs, with drinks all included, dinner at extra cost.

You will gain exclusive access to an original convict gaol cell, and behind the scenes access inside the working brewery of Australia’s oldest brew-pub. Your local guide will relish in sharing the history and mysteries of The Rocks, as you hear why there are three pubs that can claim the mantle as ‘Sydney’s Oldest Pub’.

Learn how Australia’s only military uprising was because of alcohol, and how the outbreak of the bubonic plague affected ‘the taste of a beer’.

Soak up the atmosphere of a once forgotten era, rife with corruption, shady characters and organised crime, and discover hidden tunnels used for rum smugglers and shanghaiing unsuspecting sailors.
