Take a trip back in time to the origins of Old Sydney, as author Mike Tatlow takes you on a fascinating journey to the colonial heart of one of the world's most beautiful cities. Spend an afternoon, a day or more as you discover the history of Sydney, and the characters who made it the city it is today. From the First Fleet, to the hardship and triumphs of convict life and the men of vision including Arthur Phillip and Lachlan Macquarie, A WALK IN OLD SYDNEY is the ultimate tourist guide to a bygone but remarkable era. Relive the bawdy, colourful and often dangerous Rocks Push; marvel at the engineering feats cut from unforgiving sandstone and take in the Georgian, Victorian and Federation houses, pubs and civic buildings, as well as public gardens, parks and statues. With clear maps and over 60 marked points of interest, this revised and updated A WALK IN OLD SYDNEY takes in the priceless heritage of Sydney, including Macquarie Street, Circular Quay, the Rocks, Walsh Bay, Millers Point, Darling Harbour and Chinatown. Ideal for tourists, school groups, travellers, historians or locals who would like to really discover their city, or show it off to others.
