The Rocks is one of the few spots within Sydney Harbour you can still see the original shoreline. It is situated partly beneath The Park Hyatt Boardwalk.


The Rocks is rich in the history of modern times It was established after the establishment of the colony in 1788. It was referred to as Tallawoladah according to people of the Cadigal inhabitants. The initial structures were originally vernacular structures, constructed built of wattle and daub with thatched roofs. Later, the roofs were made of local sandstone, the region’s name.

From the very beginning of the town, it was regarded as a slum as well as the convicts’ part of town, frequently frequented by sailors visiting the area and prostitutes. In the years following November 1790, a lot of the people living there were aboriginals. The district in 1823 had a population of around 1200. The late 19th century, the area was ruled by a group called the rock push. The gang maintained its reputation for roughness until the late 1870s.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the majority of the buildings in the area were in severe disrepair. In 1900, the bubonic cholera epidemic was discovered and the state government reinstated the areas around The Rocks and Darling Harbour with the goal of destroying them and re-building the structures. More than 3,800 homes built, wharves, and other structures were inspected , and hundreds were demolished however, the implementation of these plans was brought to a halt by the beginning in World War I.

During the 1920s, a number of structures were destroyed as part of the construction of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Sydney Cove Redevelopment Authority with the aim to demolish the majority of the buildings that were originally constructed, and then redeveloping them into high-density residential homes. Then, in February of 1971, a small group of local residents established the Rocks Residents Group to oppose the plans.

They believed that the proposed homes would lead to higher rents, and this would push away the residents who had lived in the region. Residents’ groups requested an green prohibition by the Builder’s Labourers’ Association which had been more involved in preventing controversial developments over the last four years.
