Sydney’s most historic precinct recalls the back streets of stateside Colonial era hot spots like Boston, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. The city “started” here, so to speak, not long after Australia was established in 1788. Wander around to gawp at the lovely sandstone buildings, duck into the Fortune of War pub for a beer and a chicken schnitzel, and browse the souvenir shops that dot the precinct.
