The Rocks Markets

Level 6, 66 Harrington Street, The Rocks NSW 2000

What makes a great market? If it’s about passionate people selling things you want to buy in a pretty cool location then The Rocks Markets is one of Sydney’s greatest.

You know The Rocks is on the doorstep of the CBD, but it’s slower here, and infinitely more charming. And, really, who wants to rush when there’s so much to take in.

Where else can you buy dresses and bags designed by the stallholder, one-off jewellery, original artworks and prints, in a place where you can feel the sun on your face and catch glimpses of our gorgeous harbour?

If you haven’t been for a while, come back. You’ll be genuinely surprised.

Sydney Observatory

Watson Road, Observatory Hill, The Rocks NSW 2000

Built in 1858, Sydney Observatory is Australia’s oldest observatory, and one of the most significant sites in the nation’s scientific history. It is recognised as an item of ‘state significance’ by the New South Wales Government and is heritage listed.

In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Observatory was essential to shipping, navigation, meteorology and timekeeping as well as to the study of the stars seen from the Southern Hemisphere. The Government Astronomers worked and lived in the building until 1982* when Sydney Observatory became part of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.

Today the Observatory is a museum and public observatory with an important role in astronomy education and public telescope viewing. It contains an 1874 29cm lens telescope, a 42cm computer-controlled telescope and a hydrogen-alpha solar telescope, able to be viewed through by visitors during booked sessions. There are also a virtual reality 3-D space theatre, exhibitions about astronomy, meteorology and the history of Sydney Observatory, beanbag planetarium, lecture theatrette, souvenir shop and beautiful gardens.
