The Rocks Ride
The Rocks, Dawes Point and Millers Point make up an historic area of Sydney, dating back to 1788, when a colony was first established at Sydney Cove, known as Tallawoladah to the local Gadigal people. Cycling or walking is easy around this beautiful part of Sydney. There are cafes, restaurants, hotels, museums, markets, gardens, parks and the Observatory to visit. Cycling is safe on the streets, and Hickson Road has a dedicated bike path.
You can arrive at Circular Quay by train or ferry, or you can cycle or walk across the Harbour Bridge from Milsons Point. Travel along George Street next to Circular Quay, turn right into Hickson Road and go under the Harbour Bridge . Proceed past the Walsh Bay finger wharf area, with its restaurants, theatres and creative arts centres. Turn into Towns Place and enter Barangaroo on Millers Point.
From Barangaroo enter Munn and Argyle Streets with their celebrated terrace houses, hotels and cafes. Just meander around the area and discover the sights of old Sydney. From Argyle Street go up Watson Road to Sydney Observatory on Dawes Point, and enjoy magnificent views over the western harbour. From here proceed to Cumberland Street and explore the charming streets and lanes of The Rocks.
