Sydney boasts a number of historical landmarks and areas. This was a city founded by Convicts initially. However, Sydney has a few claim to fame landmarks and attractions to it's name. If it wasn't for these early settlers, would Sydney be the dynamic city it is today? Where is Sydney's most historical area? The Rocks? Manly? Somewhere else? Why?

Go on any historical walking tour, or just discover for yourself: The Rocks. Knowing more about Cadman's Cottage is only the beginning. The pub stories are also interesting. Otherwise, for a more spookier history lesson of Sydney- the Q station at Manly.
The Rocks; the more I visit it the more references to the past I find there, like the signs about the old woodblocks hidden under the new roads, the 'First Impressions' Sculpture near George Street and everything else.
Parramatta, Sydney's 2nd settlement has some beautiful historical sights. There are 3 places in Parramatta that come to mind when it comes to historical homes that have been lovingly restored and decorated to the period. Old Government house is set in Parramatta Park and is a great learning day out for the kids. Stop for a meal at the coffee shop there and then take the kids to feed the ducks on the lake in the park. Elizabeth Farm (pictured), and Experiment Farm, which are just a short drive up the road, are also well worth a visit. I've been to them all.
Awesome answer Lisa :) I've given you my vote. Beautiful picture too :)
Stanmore! It's where George Johnston rode from to quash the rum rebellion, and it had the first public school (I think - that may be wrong)
Okay, probably really the Rocks but just adding a little variety...
You can't speak about Australian history without mentioning Botany Bay where Captain cook forst settled. Bare Island was the fort here was designed to protect Botany Bay and is still standing today.
Great answer Mel. Of course, Sydney's origins :)
