Bringing Sydney’s Foreshore to life
Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority is proud to manage The Rocks: the land of the Gadigal people and the first place of European settlement in Australia.
We present the outdoor markets, produce intimate and large-scale events, provide educational tours and help preserve The Rocks’ unique heritage.
We also clean up the rubbish, tend to the plants and grass, maintain the benches you sit on and the cobblestones you walk on and generally make sure everything goes smoothly in this incredible place visited by more than 13 million people a year.
So take your time, breathe in the fresh harbour air and savour the stories The Rocks has to tell.
