Spend a Day at The Rocks

Start your day with a history lesson at The Rocks Discovery Museum. Learn about the area from its days occupied by whalers and traders to the establishment of the English colonies. This sandstone warehouse holds archeological artifacts and collections of images that visually tell the story of the land.

Grab a picnic lunch and blanket, and spread out on the grass at First Fleet Park between the Museum of Contemporary Art and Circular Quay. It’s a perfect place to people-watch and relax.

For all you surfer guys and gals, head to Rip Curl to shop for all your surfing gear. Your new finds may take you over to Bondi Beach where the surf is booming.

For afternoon refreshments, the Wine Odyssey offers handpicked wines from Australia’s independent wineries. Try the matched food and wine flights, and inside the Tasting Theater, you can try wines while you’re guided onscreen by the winemakers who made them.
