Camperdown, University of Sydney, Main Building

The Main Building is part of the Quadrangle Group of buildings on the University of Sydney campus, in the inner city suburb of Camperdown. It was designed by Edmund Blacket and James Barnet in the Victorian Academic Gothic architectural style and built around 1854. This view of the main entrance is from inside the Quadrangle.
