Situated at the very base of the Harbour Bridge, the Rocks is a lively and popular spot for locals and visitors alike. In a time long ago, the area was inhabited by the indigenous Gadigal people, before the first European settlers claimed the land in 1788. Your Driver Guide will share stories, both tall and true, of the characters and events that shaped this port community. From the Rocks you will get a stunning view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the largest steel arch bridge in the world.

Mrs. Macquarie's Chair
Mrs. Macquarie's Chair sits high on the peninsula known as Mrs. Macquarie's Point. The chair is an exposed sandstone rock that was hand carved into a bench by convicts in 1810. It is said that Mrs. Macquarie, the wife of the then NSW Governor, was known to visit the area to take in the views.
From Mrs. Macquarie's Chair you will get a birds-eye view of arguably the most recognisable icon in the World, the Sydney Opera House. This World Heritage listed building is considered a masterpiece of late modern architecture and a world class performing arts venue.
You are now heading to the entrance of Sydney Harbour, known as the Gap. A dramatic ocean cliff on the eastern coast of Sydney, the Gap will give you breathtaking views of the New South Wales coastline.
Australians are renowned for their relaxed and outdoor lifestyle and Bondi Beach is a prime example of this.

You can wander along the shoreline and dip your toes into the cool ocean or treat yourself to something from one of the many cafes and restaurants (own expense).
