Attractions & Activities in Sydney CBD & Inner

tip Local Tip

When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.

Nestled amongst hidden courtyards and laneways of the Rocks are some of the best bars and restaurants within Sydney. Some local favourites that are right on the door step of the hotel, include Frank Mac’s, a cocktail bar tucked inside a heritage sandstone building dating back to the 1840’s. Have a seat in the hidden courtyard while trying some of the local gin collections on offer. The Squire’s Landing is also a must. Witness some of the best views in Sydney on a sunny day, while sampling some of James Squires famous beers, such as the 150 lashes Pale Ale.

If you find yourself staying on a weekend, the Rocks Markets are a must for browsing local art, unique homeware and clothing. Located on the oldest street of Sydney with the Harbour Bridge as your backdrop, the markets are a great way to enjoy local artists, music and food as you stroll the cobblestone streets.
