Hyde Park Barracks
Before the arrival of Governor Macquarie, convicts were able to roam freely every night. In 1819, determined to enforce law and order, Macquarie engaged architect Francis Greenway to design this Georgian-style classical building which is now known as Hyde Park Barracks. Today the Barracks is home to great collection of exhibits that explore the prison lifestyle.

A room on the top floor is strung with hammocks, exactly as it was when the building housed convicts
