The World Heritage listed Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney’s CBD is one of the most significant convict sites in the world. A crossroads for tens of thousands of people, it played a central role in the world’s largest and longest-running system of convict transportation.

Take a step back in time and explore what history the Barracks have to offer. As the site is completely kid friendly, let the children run up and down the halls, and partake in the many interactive exhibits on offer. The children can dress up in the colonial or convict clothes, or take a rest in a hammock, or even sit down at the convict dinner table. There are interactive screens where the children can explore Sydney as it was during first settlement. Once exploring the three floors, make sure to head to the Bakehouse for a nibble and coffee.
