There's something for everyone on the drinks front; think coffee, juice, kombucha, lemonade and everything in between.
Share food with friends and family and head to the new chill out spaces in one of Sydney’s best kept secret, Dawes Point Park. Lay back, relax and take in the serene water views on a picnic rug or table under the shade of the iconic Harbour Bridge. While you’re there discover your new favourite local band, solosist or DJ, with a diverse roster of artists and voices slated for each weekend of the Markets.
Follow the sounds of lively DJs and acoustic tunes down The Rocks’ cobblestone laneways for free performances at the markets. Rising stars and respected Australian performers from a range of backgrounds take the ‘stage’ each weekend sharing original songs, classic hits and untold stories. Whether you're in the mood to sing along with up-and-coming bands, get your groove on with energetic DJs or enjoy the talents of top-class buskers, there’s something for all. The Rocks is committed to amplifying current Australian voices and stories from talented and culturally diverse backgrounds. So grab your friends, come down and join the party.
