Heritage Accommodation

The Australian Hotel is a superb example of Edwardian/ Federation style architecture.

Built in 1913, its licence has been in continual use since the early 1800’s. We offer a friendly, charming atmosphere and are proud to be part of the Rocks Village, the birthplace of our city of Sydney. Here is the site of the first European settlement in Australia.

In 1788, the First Fleet pitched their tents on the rocky outcrop along the cove’s western shore, giving the area its name. Our hotel’s charming accommodation, which is located on level 1 of our historic 100 year old pub, has been a favourite amongst Sydney-siders as well as tourists visiting The Rocks, with it’s close proximity to the heart of Sydney. Our Bed & Breakfast On The Rocks is an ideal choice for your accommodation.

To check into your room, please go to the bar & ask one of our friendly staff. We look forward to welcoming you in true Aussie style!

Recent Experiences

The hotel is comfortable, clean and tidy with character. The staff were helpful and friendly. It was quite noisy at night due to the pub downstairs and the sports club across the road - but I guess that's to be expected above a pub. Excellent value for the location

Great location and friendly staff. Perfect for anyone travelling on their own.
