Next stop on my walk was around The Rocks to Circular Quay. Many of the buildings in the area have been converted for other purposes. In the 1980’s it wasn’t a popular area and there was a movement to knock down a lot of buildings and build modern, probably high-rise buildings. The public rallied around and convinced authorities they should save the area and make it into a tourist area. If this hadn’t happened so much of Sydney’s and Australia’s history would have been lost forever.
The terrace houses above have been converted into shops and small businesses.
An example of some of the beautiful sandstone that you see buildings around Sydney made from.
The Harbour Rocks Hotel is quite famous in the area. I’ve often thought of staying there one day.
