Hyde Park Barracks Souvenir Book

Hyde Park Barracks Souvenir Book

$10.00

This beautifully illustrated souvenir book showcases the stories told at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks, a fascinating building that holds the key to understanding Australia’s modern beginnings.

Located in the heart of Sydney, Australia’s oldest city, the Hyde Park Barracks is a site of exceptional significance.

Today a museum, the Hyde Park 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 souvenir book features the stories, the people and the objects presented in the museum spaces.
