The top 9 things to do in The Rocks this Easter

The Rocks Markets

Sydney’s most popular artisan, local market - The Rocks Markets - are open on Saturday and Sunday of Easter weekend. 
Visit and you’ll find stalls and shops by Sydney makers and creatives, delicious food prepared by local chefs and a roster of exciting free events, including live music. 

Museum of Love

The Museum of Love is the brainchild of the geniuses at Sugar Republic, the creators of the giant candy museum in Melbourne. This time around they’ve transformed three storeys of heritage warehouse into a gigantic experience museum that celebrates love. It’s full of interactive fun and Insta-worthy moments including a confetti shower, a tunnel made entirely of teddy bears and a mini pink ball pool. And the best part? They’re offering buy-one-get-one-free tickets for kids this Easter long weekend!

Easter-themed Treats

Your Easter long weekend should definitely include holiday staples like easter eggs, hot cross buns and delicious chocolate. Here’s where you can find the best of it in The Rocks

Hot cross scones at the Tea Cosy

Made with a mix of dried fruits, spices, and brown sugar, these delicious, bready snacks are then topped with a fig and cinnamon jam and cream and a warming chai tea. A warning - these will sell out so get in quick!

Hot Cross Buns at La Renaissance Cafe

The home of Sydney’s best pastries is getting into the Easter spirit! They are freshly baking soft, fluffy brioche hot cross with a hint of traditional spice fresh each morning. They’re available every day until Easter Monday but pre orders are essential.
