State Library of New South Wales, statue

This bronze statue of Lieutenant General Sir Richard Bourke (1777–1855) stands outside the State Library of New South Wales, off Macquarie Street. He was an Irish-born Governor of New South Wales from 1831-1837. The sculpture on a granite plinth was created by Edward Hodges Baily and unveiled in 1842.
