Hyde Park Barracks Souvenir Book


Hyde Park Barracks Souvenir Book


Located in the heart of Sydney, Australia’s oldest city, the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Hyde Park Barracks is a site of exceptional significance. This fascinating building holds the key to understanding Australia’s modern beginnings.

Today, the Barracks provides an extraordinary new way to experience history. Through evocative storytelling, it brings to life the convict origins of colonial Australia and its impact on Aboriginal nations, and the shelter and care of immigrant and destitute women. It also displays thousands of items worn, touched and treasured by past residents, drawn from one of Australia’s most important archaeological collections. The Barracks offers a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with Australia’s past.
