Tour of the historic Rocks

MDF and her friend and myself had booked a ‘Historic Tour of Sydney’s The Rocks area – Secrets of Sydney. This is an area where all the rough Pommie convicts started out, and it used to be a big slum. There was a half price deal, so we WERE ON IT!

The tour was ‘refreshment’ based, meaning that we got wine, coffee, and a beer all included along the way. It was quite enjoyable – there were a few nooks and crannies to discover, and was generally an interesting walk. We learnt a few interesting facts (none of which I can now remember!)

The walk ended up in a very old haunted pub, where they used to abduct drunk people and Shanghai them out to sea. There was a jazz type band playing there consisting of some VERY old people…
