Map of Sydney City Center East

This building, designed to house convicts, is amongst a number of notable public buildings that still survive that were commissioned by Governor Macquarie, during his term.

The building was designed by an ex-convict, Francis Greenway. Its elegant and simple design makes it one of his best.

You can visit here, there is a museum that houses a collection of artefacts from the early years of Sydney, as well as displays and exhibitions. You can see where the prisoners slept and how they lived. Find it on the Sydney Map:
