Wintertime @ The Rocks
Have you ever wondered what Sydney would look like as a snow-covered city?
There’s no need to imagine - just visit The Rocks this Queen’s Birthday long weekend and you’ll see snowflakes cascading from the sky and winter magic everywhere you look.
The Rocks is transforming into a winter village for the long weekend with snow machines, themed decorations and exciting live entertainment from your favourite local artists, bringing those cozy winter vibes.
Nurses Walk Winter Laneway
Nurses Walk will come alive as a wintery laneway in the heart of The Rocks. Fairy lights and snowflake decorations will bring a little magic to the scene, while a snow machine will send real snowflakes falling down the street.
Your favourite local restaurants, bars, cafes and retailers will be manning timber carts throughout the heritage laneway, offering hearty fare, winter treats and warming drinks to keep you toasty. That includes:
- Open fires and toasted marshmallows
- Hot choccies from Starbucks.
- Hot ciders from Aslan Coffee Roasters.
- Mulled wine from Tayim.
- Baked goodies from Bakers Oven.
To top it all off, there’ll be an art exhibition from AAD Art Gallery showcasing the incredible work of local creatives and a live solo musician from Friday to Monday, 11am-3pm.
The Rocks Winter Markets
Alongside the usual schedule of exciting live music, The Rocks Markets will adopt a charming winter theme with decorations and dining options to keep you warm including roast lunches, toasty soups, warm bread, hot choccies and much more. To make it even more special, The Rocks Markets will also open on Monday 14 June so you can enjoy your long weekend!
There’s also plenty of awesome wintery additions to keep the winter vibe flowing throughout The Rocks with a wide range of winter treats and one-off dining areas, including:
- A snug open air dining area with a dining hall style table set up on Atherden St.
- Tea Cosy next door serving hot toddies and hot ciders.
