The Rocks, warehouses

Campbell's Stores is a row of heritage-listed sandstone warehouses along Circular Quay West at The Rocks. The warehouses which overlook Campbells Cove, with views across Circular Quay to the Sydney Opera House, were constructed between 1839 and 1861. These former warehouses have been converted into restaurants with the Waterfront Restaurant adorned with nautical paraphernalia and a replica of a square rigged sailing ship mast above the outdoor terrace. The Australian Steamship Navigation Company building is on the left and Bushells Warehouse can be seen behind it.

  9. We enjoyed the Rocks area when we visited Sydney in 2000. Just about time for another visit to Sydney I think.
    I saw an interesting piece about the building of the Opera House on TV the other night. What an architectural marvel it is.
    Have a great week and thank you for stopping by my blog this week.
