Begun in 1841, this historic, late-Georgian complex took seven years to build and houses the oldest surviving army barracks throughout Australia. The work was supervised by Major George Barney, commanding the Royal Engineers, and incorporates sandstone quarried on the site. Free guided tours are lead by volunteers once a week and comprise a thirty minute band presentation, a one hour tour of the complex and an optional visit to the Army Museum. The latter focuses upon the history of the armed forces in New South Wales and displays such objects as weaponry, costume and paper artifacts.
