The Rocks is a eclectic place that offers a little something for everyone. Though very touristy, it has its unique characteristics and tells the story of Australia's beginning. There's a free walking tour in front of the Cadmans cottage daily at 6PM if you'd like to learn more about its history. And there's a Farmer's market here on the weekend where you can find souvenirs as well as awesome food stands that you have to stand in line for!

While in Sydney, don't miss out on a stroll through this historical neighborhood, leading up to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Home to some of the most interesting attractions the city has to offer, such as the Custom House and Pylon Lookout, it also exudes a bohemian atmosphere complete with cafés, boutiques and various weekend markets. Located right next to Circular Quay.

The Rocks is the "cool" and Bohemian neighborhood of Sydney, complete with plenty of shopping, pubs, cafes, and the colorful weekend markets. Stroll around during the day for window-shopping or a cup of coffee, and hit it up at night for a classy bar scene.

The Rocks is the premiere shopping area for tourists of Sydney. It has a myriad of shops, stores, and restaurants, and it is close to main attractions like the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.

It is a bit like the Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, albeit with a little less tourist trinket traps, but not by much.

Ok, so nobody above has touched the New Years thing. I spent last year in Sydney and this is what I learned about New Years:
Be prepared to settle in early. If you want to be in Sydney Harbor for the countdown, you'll have to set up shop early in the morning the day before. Some people even stay out there overnight like it's a Twilight premiere. There are loads of spots nearby that have great views of the fireworks and bridge, but you won't have to show up so early. There's a list of vantage points at http://www.sydneynewyearseve.com/. I spent mine at Rushcutter's Bay. I got there at about 4p.m. and had a great view. Also, don't expect a rowdy, drunken evening. All of the viewing points are alcohal-free zones because of some violence a few years back.

That said, if you prepare yourself and bring plenty of water, sunscreen and time killers to fill your day, Sydney New Year's will be a night you never forget.
