QUAY TO THE CITY IS SOLD OUT!!!
A head-on collision between contemporary performance and history created by young people in collaboration with some of Sydney’s most exciting theatre artists and staged in some of Sydney's most unique locations.
Quay to the City is a walking tour event which will take you on a theatrical adventure through Sydney's oldest and most fascinating suburb - The Rocks. It works like this. Pick up your ticket and map at our special George Street box office, then, find your own way around, stopping along the way to enjoy short theatrical performances in unique historical locations.
Every city starts somewhere but Sydney's beginnings are truly incredible and those layers of history live on in the suburb today. Thousands of years of aboriginal culture, a brutal convict settlement, two-hundred years of working class life, ships and visitors from all corners of the globe, plague, poverty, debauchery and grassroots solidarity. The Rocks has seen it all.
Take this unique theatrical tour through haunted alleyways and cobblestoned streets and experience The Rocks in a totally new light – as a canvas, a living space and an inspiration. Who knows what you'll find?
PLEASE NOTE – This is a walking/climbing/exploring tour that roves all over The Rocks. Flat comfortable shoes are advised. Some historical areas have accessibility limitations, including no bulky bags, strollers, and wheelchairs. Please call the box office on 9270 2400 if you have concerns about health or accessibility.
