Duration: 3 hours
Meeting Point: Memorial Compass, First Fleet Park
The Rocks is a wealth of culture, teeming with history, and ready for you to explore. A stroll around the area will open up a window into Sydney as a city. Many of Sydney’s most established businesses can be found at The Rocks, including some of its oldest pubs.
On this tour, you will visit six historic pubs to learn more about their individual histories and how they have contributed to Sydney. You’ll learn about the history of beer itself, how it is brewed, why it has become such a significant part of Australian culture, and how this has all come to contribute to the growing interest in craft beers.
There will be an opportunity to purchase samples of the beers that interest you the most at each pub, and some food will be provided.
There will be some walking involved on the day, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring an umbrella if the weather calls for it. Tour price includes some food items, but does not include beer samples. All participants must be over 18 years of age.
If you’re looking for a few hours of fun on the weekend, meeting new people, and discovering new things about your city, Foodi tours will show you where to start.
