The Rocks, waterfront warehouses

Campbell's Stores is a row of heritage-listed sandstone warehouses at The Rocks which have been converted into restaurants. They overlook Campbells Cove, with views across Circular Quay to the Sydney Opera House.

  8. How easily change and progress can take over a place. For this one, it must be a welcome development before and even now. Very nice photos here.

  11. Looks like a great place to eat and hang out and enjoy! Great photos, as always. I love it when cities will make use of older buildings rather than tearing everything down and starting over again. Seems this is what has been done here! Great post!

  18. It must be nice to hear the wind playing above with the sails, making it probably felt like a small holiday escape.
    How very nice to see such a place, probably unseen over here.
    A wonderful Tuesday for you.
