Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
A fantastic combination of Sydney’s history, Australian wine and the great Aussie BBQ. This small-group walking tour is led by local guides who are passionate about their city and love sharing stories of the convicts, settlers, and bars and pubs of Sydney's historic Rocks district.
What You Can Expect
Drop into a local pub to enjoy a wine tasting, and hear about Australia's famous wine industry. Then follow your guide into the photogenic alleys before stopping off for a barbecue dinner in the setting of the Rocks’ sandstone lanes and arches. Listen to stories about the Rocks as you share food and drinks at this all-you-can-eat feast of barbecue-your-own steak, chicken, lamb, kebabs or fish, or order a prepared meal of roast beef, roast pork or vegetarian pie. There's also an all-you-can-eat salad bar, roast potatoes, bread and choice of desserts, with beer and wine included.
Then return to the Rocks’ tucked-away lanes to visit archaeological remains from the convict days of 200 years ago. Hear more fascinating anecdotes about convicts, settlers, publicans, bars and a military coup, and end your tour with a cocktail at a historic pub, just five minutes from Circular Quay.
We really liked this walking tour. A very nice introduction to the history of Sydney. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The wine tasting was rather limited - it wasn't a 'described wine' tasting, but rather a $7.50 credit which worked on an automated set up -- enough for two small tastings out of a large variety of wines with no description of the wines or the wineries.
The BBQ on the other hand was excellent. One choose the type of meat and then cooked it yourself on a large grill. My wife and I had lamb, others had beef or even fish or skewers.
All in all, good value for money here.
This was a great walking tour and Michelle was a great host! There was only 4 people in our group so it was really personal!
