Mice Net : February 2009
Keep on rockin’ D arling Harbour may have age on her side but The Rocks is all about experience. And in the competitive world of business events, experience goes a long way. Visitors and Sydneysiders are never short of something to do if they head down to Sydney’s only heritage precinct, The Rocks. For close on 240 years The Rocks has been a great place for a wander, a meal, a drink and on the weekends, an exploration of The rocks Markets, which feature a new Farmers’ Market that operates Friday and Saturday in Jack Mundey Place plus a dedicated designers’ section. So you can now shop for the freshest local produce at a truly authentic farmers’ market in the historic heart of Sydney. The markets are full of unusual Australian hand made goods and curios, and are a great place to find that out-of-the ordinary gift for a loved one back home, all just a short stroll away from many of Sydney’s top quality hotels. For the meetings, incentives and events segments too, The Rocks really is a one-stop-shop with a plethora of venues, unique spaces and spectacular dining options. Its picture-perfect location and easy access wasn’t lost on one extra large group of international meetings delegates in 2008 who took over more than 6000 square metres of the precinct for a dinner at the XXII International Congress of The Transplantation Society. The 4000 plus participants could mingle and dance the night away in the Arrivals Hall of the Overseas passenger Terminal, dine on specially created menus at the dockside Group’s restaurants including Waterfront, Wolfies and italian Village opposite the Opera House, tour the James Craig Tall Ship and shop with ‘congress money’ in the specially set up stalls from The Rocks Markets. The event, devised by Corporate & Special Events, a division of Tour Hosts, culminated in a spectacular fireworks display over the harbour. And it’s certainly not just large groups that can be catered for exceptionally well within The Rocks. With so many pubs, venues and spaces there really is something for everyone – from bawdy, beery nights in venues like the lowenbrau Keller to stylish soirees in places like the Museum of contemporary art, The Rocks has it covered.
