The Rocks was Sydney’s first social village. The place where people came together to eat, drink and socialise. Today, the precinct is a thriving community of independent makers, creators and providers of high-end designs, small-scale goods and boutique products.

The Rocks offers a contrasting fusion of elements, unlike anywhere else in Sydney. It’s old and new, simple and complex, it’s where culture, character and people converge in unpredictable and exciting ways. There’s modern art amidst aging sandstone and on-trend dining behind worn facades. There are boutique clothing brands in old butcher shops and simple cafes sharing sidewalks with world-class hotels. Every space here holds stories, written over generations and delicately crafted by time.

Located on the stunning Sydney harbour and set amid some of Sydney’s most iconic cultural destinations, The Rocks is an ever-evolving mix of pleasures and experiences, providing unique leasing opportunities that no other precinct can rival.

The Rocks is a significant mixed-use retail, commercial and hospitality precinct and has:

  • 25 hectares of premium real estate spanning Circular Quay to the Harbour Bridge
  • over 15 million annual customer visits (Jan - Dec 2019)
  • $85 average spend per visit (Source: Quantium 2017)
