Preserving The Rocks

Since 1900 the historic fabric of The Rocks was slowly demolished as old gave way to new. Today, the New South Wales Government actively preserves and promotes this important fragment of early Sydney.

Public concerns to preserve the historic buildings of The Rocks can be traced back as early as 1939 when the Commissariat Store on Circular Quay was demolished. By the 1960s, faced with high-rise development, local residents joined forces with trades unions, planners, historians and lawyers to ensure the historic values of The Rocks were preserved.
