EXPECT: Fascinating history, delivered with energy and insight on a walking exploration of Sydney’s original European settlement: The Rocks. Together we will uncover the scallywag stories of convicts, soldiers, rum and rebellions.
TOUR TASTER: Once upon a time, a bizarre colonial experiment took place on the rocky shores of an ancient harbour. Thousands of miles from home, Britain’s banished thieves were locked in a prison with walls made of ocean, hunger, fear and the bush.
Defying the odds, their shanty camp clutched to life on the banks of a tiny stream. Gardens were grown, rum was traded and homes were carved into the sandstone cliffs.
Centuries changed and legends grew. Scallywag Sydney was born. Her squalid secrets & stories etched into the very foundations of the city we know today.
