Agar Steps

Stairway with 108 steps linking Kent Street with Observatory Hill. They were named for local identity Thomas Agar. With terrace housing along the southern side, they illustrate the small scale pedestrian networks linking residential areas which were typical of The Rocks. They overlook what was once the Kent Street quarry.
