Co będziecie robić

ON THIS UNIQUE EXPERIENCE:
Join a passionate history-guide (Max or April or Danica) on an exploration of Sydney’s notorious convict heritage at Sydney Cove & The Rocks.

Expect fascinating stories, delivered with energy & insight, as we explore the remarkable lives of sailors, soldiers, scallywags, convicts, con-artists, craftsmen, larrikins & low-lives as they began to trade rum, quarry stone & etch a living upon Sydney's shoreline from the late 18th century.

Over 2.5 hours, we'll unpack the process of convict transportation in graphic detail — retracing the steps of its curious colonial characters & their immediate effect Sydney's ancient Indigenous clans.

Navigating the cobbled alley-ways, hidden corridors & forgotten monuments of this port-side settlement, we'll venture off the beaten track to dig up its memories - the good, the bad & the plague ridden.

Designed to engage both Sydney locals & visitors, this is a journey through time & space that takes history off the shelf and brings it to life with vivid descriptions, imagery & an infectious passion for the past.

Best of all, finish your experience at an old-fashioned local pub in The Rocks where you can grab drink & chat through stories with your guide & group.

April gave an informative, informed presentation and explanation of early convict life in Sydney. We were vastly entertained and learnt many new facts about the Rocks area, and its' early convict inhabitants. Would highly recommend.

We had such an excellent experience on this tour. April is a fantastic guide, she has a deep knowledge and passion for history. Her stories brought the Rocks to life, and I can’t recommend this tour enough.

Insightful fun walk - the guide really knew her stuff and was passionate about sharing it. The walk was very worthwhile doing - she shared a few stories that go way beyond what guidebooks tell you.
