The scenic natural and historical features of The Rocks with its cobblestone pathways, terraces, narrow lanes and stairs can make it a challenging environment to navigate for some visitors with limited mobility.
However there are many places in The Rocks that can be visited and are accessible with many inclusive elements. As we continue to implement new initiatives to improve the experience of all our visitors some sites that provide access are:
- 80 shops, restaurants and bars, along George Street and Nurses Walk
- The Rocks Centre and The Rocks Markets in Playfair Street on Fridays and the weekends
- The foreshore along West Circular Quay, Campbells Cove, and Dawes point park
- Cumberland Street and the Archaeological Dig site.
- Circular Quay and the ferry wharfs
There are a number of building lifts that enable access from one road level to another, including the Rocks Centre, The Cleland Bond Building, Grosvenor Place, the Metcalf Bond Building and Campbells Stores.
A lift provides access to the Harbour Bridge from Cumberland Street, and a lift provides access to the Cahill Expressway and Macquarie Street at Circular quay.
Accessible parking spaces are available in Cumberland Street (KGV Recreation Centre), George Street Sth (MCA), George Street Nth (Fort Street), West Circular Quay (OPT), and Hickson Road (Fort Street)
A number of public amenities are also available throughout the Rocks.
Accessible toilets are available around The Rocks. Refer to The Rocks Accessibility Map for further details.
