A look at the Rocks area, focusing on restored old buildings, and tourist attractions including retail outlets.
Summary by Damien Parer
This is a nicely shot montage of today’s Rocks area. It is a classic example of 'sponsored’ or commissioned work of this period. The use of the walking tour, with a well-chosen snippet of location sound, helps personalise the material, effectively making us one of the participants.
This sponsored documentary traces the beginning of The Rocks in Sydney Cove to its present redevelopment as a tourist precinct. A young female tourist appears throughout the film as a linking device.
The short documentary was commissioned by the Sydney Cove Redevelopment Authority to promote tourism and shows their involvement in the redevelopment.
