Wat je gaat doen

ON THIS UNIQUE EXPERIENCE: Join a passionate history-guide on an exploration of Sydney’s notorious convict heritage at Sydney Cove & The Rocks. Expect fascinating stories, delivered with energy and insight, as we uncover the sailors, soldiers, scallywags, convicts & craftsmen who began to trade rum, quarry stone and etch a living upon Sydney's shoreline from the late 18th century. Over 2.5 hours, we'll unpack the process of convict transportation in graphic detail - retracing the steps of its curious colonial characters & their immediate effect Sydney's ancient Indigenous clans. Navigating the cobbled alley-ways, hidden corridors, forgotten monuments & secret waterways of this port-side settlement, we'll venture off the beaten track to dig up its memories - the good, the bad & the plague ridden. Designed to engage both Sydney locals & visitors, this is a journey through time & space that takes history off the shelf, dusts it off & brings it to life with vivid descriptions, imagery & an infectious passion for the past. Best of all, finish your journey in heart of The Rocks & allow the stories to soak-in over a drink with your guide (included) at one of this area's infamous historic pubs. See you onboard!
