For anyone looking for fun things to do in Sydney, this historic walking pub tour will tick all the boxes!

During this unique experience, you’ll be able to drink in history as we wander through the alleys and cobbled streets of The Rocks, stopping off at some of Sydney's oldest pubs along the way. Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the gangs, legends and hauntings of this extraordinary neighbourhood, as you’re given the opportunity to indulge in a little beer tasting or wine sampling.

You’ll learn all about:

  • The fight for the title “Sydney’s Oldest Pub”
  • How the Larrikin Gangs ruled the Rocks
  • What’s the 6 O’Clock Swill?
  • Where Bubonic Plague started and how it was controlled
  • The fight for The Rocks
  • Sydney’s oldest haunted place
  • And more stories, myths, and legends than you can pack into two-and-a-half-hours of fun

The Rocks walking pub tour takes two-and-a-half-hours and includes a choice of a beer (285ml/10oz), house wine, or soft drink at each pub. Once the walking pub tour is over, you and your tour companions can relax at an iconic pub for a well-earned rest, a delicious meal and another beer, or two...

Important tour information:
  • We will meet at Harts Pub, Essex St & Gloucester Street, The Rocks.
  • The tours take approximately two-and-a-half-hours and will finish at an iconic Pub in The Rocks.
  • This tour accommodates a minimum of three guests. Your order will be confirmed once we have filled three seats on the tour.
  • The $30 optional extra pre or post-tour meal and drink is from The Australian Heritage Hotel (100 Cumberland St, The Rocks). Choose from a selection of gourmet pizza's, burgers or salads plus any tap beer, cider, house wine or soft drink. Present your order confirmation to the Duty Manager at the bar.
  • If choosing to have your meal before the tour, do not order food with less than one hour before the tour starts. The tour meeting point is a short walk.
  • Because The Rocks venues are very busy, we do not always go to the same pubs each tour. If you do have a must-see pub, please let us know when making your booking and if it is a venue we use, we’ll do what we can to incorporate it into the tour.
Please note: For larger groups of 12 to 20 people, a $500 charter fee will be charged. For any groups larger than 20, please contact us for charter fee prices.

“At Dave’s, we’re all about showing you local as we love it all; food, drinks, history, and culture. Come explore with us on tour!”

Our philosophy is simple – collaboration. We love bringing people together to taste and experience the craftsmanship of our local producers.

Whether that is on a behind the scenes brewery tour, a walk back in time through our pub culture on a pub walk, or a corporate event – everything we do is about connecting more people to local communities.

In doing so, we are supporting the passions and dreams of those who are bringing to market some of the finest products available and making visitors aware of the toil and strife that goes into producing great drinks and food.

To us, it’s more than the art and science. It’s the stories, the legends, the scars of effort and devotion to doing something different. It’s about connecting people who are passionate about what they produce with those who are equally as passionate about what they consume.
