The Rocks, Millers Point now home to the who’s who in Sydney.
With “The Pier” in Walsh Bay, Highgate and other select establishments the area has become quite desirable, Although it took 200 years!
In the 1820s, commissioner JT Bigge reported on the colony's affairs and stated
that convicts being released from Hyde Park Barracks "resort to a particular
part of town called The Rocks, a place distinguished...for the practice of every
debauchery and villainy. The Rocks [is] chiefly inhabited by the most profligate
and depraved part of the population."
