Što ćete raditi

ON THIS UNIQUE EXPERIENCE: Join a passionate history-guide (Max or April) on an exploration of Sydney’s notorious convict heritage at Sydney Cove & The Rocks. Expect fascinating stories, delivered with energy and insight, as we uncover the sailors, soldiers, scallywags, convicts, craftsmen, larrikins and low-lives who began to trade rum, quarry stone and etch a living upon Sydney's shoreline from the late 18th century. Over 2.5 hours, we'll unpack the process of convict transportation in graphic detail — retracing the steps of its curious colonial characters & their immediate effect Sydney's ancient Indigenous clans. Navigating the cobbled alley-ways, hidden corridors, forgotten monuments & secret waterways of this port-side settlement, we'll venture off the beaten track to dig up its memories - the good, the bad & the plague ridden. Designed to engage both Sydney locals & visitors, this is a journey through time & space that takes history off the shelf, dusts it off & brings it to life with vivid descriptions, imagery & an infectious passion for the past. Best of all, finish your journey at an historic sandstone storehouse - turned pub where you can grab a drink in a cobblestone beer-garden & chat through stories with your guide & group. See you onboard! N.B If you would like to organise a private tour that is tailored to your time in Sydney then please be in touch.
