Hyde Park Barracks is Australia's first government-built convict barracks, and the only remaining barracks building and complex from the Macquarie era of convict administration. It marked a turning point in Australia's management of transported convicts from Britain. It is also significant because it was designed by Australia's first architect Francis Greenway, and is regarded as one of his best works. Visitors can explore the museum and join a guided tour.
Hyde Parks Barracks was included in the National Heritage List on 1 August 2007.
