TOPIC: Sydney’s hidden history in The Rocks: Convict stories, the notorious rum-trade, scallywag sailor hangouts, mutinies, sandstone ruins, heritage architecture and 19th century gangsters.

This is the curious tale of the transported felons and their jailers who washed ashore in 1788 and quickly began carving a unique brand of vice into the very Rocks upon which this city was founded. Together we will uncover their stories and secrets during a fantastic walk through time and space.
You will be introduced to the real thieves, forgers, brewers, soldiers, thugs, mutineers, tycoons, softies and heroes that played a hand in Sydney’s early formation.
Navigating through the hidden corridors, cobblestone lane-ways and sandstone ruins of this picturesque quarter, together we will bring Sydney’s history to life and have some fun along the way.
