Cadmans Cottage, Sydney

3.5
Admire Sydney's oldest surviving residential building, Cadmans Cottage. Built in 1816 along the shore of The Rocks historic area, the cottage originally housed coxswains of government boats. It takes its name from its last coxswain resident, John Cadman, the superintendent of boats who lived there with his family from 1827 until 1845. Today, the Sydney Harbour National Parks Information Centre resides in the cottage.

  • A part of Sydney history which must be preserved.
  • Important part of the history of Sydney and the harbour. Be there at 18:00 for the start of the rocks free tour offered by I'm free guides!
  • Another historically important place. Well maintained. Nice experience to visit this place.
  • Went through with the Ghost Tour of the rocks, without the guide just another old building
  • Cool old building near Sydney Harbour!

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
