How to get there: A short walk in the city is the easiest way to get to the Rocks. Get on the train to the Circular Quay, then an easy two-minute walk from the station will lead you to the oldest part of Sydney, the Rocks. Finding a parking spot there would be a difficult task, so i do no not recommend you even trying.
Treats: From the finest and rich chocolate bars and candies to delicious Nutella doughnuts, smooth and silky gelato flavors, the famous Mr Black Espresso Martini and more… try them all at the Smooth Festival of Chocolate 2017.
