A short sequence of contemporary nightlife in The Rocks, showing it active with live music, restaurants and tourist attractions. Summary by Damien Parer

This very nicely shot sequence of The Rocks in early evening effectively creates a warm, friendly and inviting mood in well-restored historic settings. The first piece of commissioned music is nicely evocative, and the well-timed editing of the night life sits comfortably with it. The final scene of the jazz band, shot live, is particularly appealing.
