Museum of Sydney, monument

The Museum of Sydney is located on the corner Phillip Street and Bridge Street. The sandstone monument declares that this is the site of Australia's first Government House from 1788 to 1845. The ruins were exposed by archaeologists in the 1980s and relics found have been incorporated in the museum. The museum explores colonial and contemporary Sydney through objects, pictures and digital media techniques. 


  1. I had no idea that the sandstone monument marked the site of Australia's first Government House (1788-1845). That is so cool.

    1. Hels, it looks like it was created a long time ago too but might have been moved to its current location after they built the museum.

  2. Quite a contrast between the modern addition and the original.

  3. Kudos to those who incorporate the old into the new!

  4. Interesting mix here. Tom The Backroads Traveller

  5. How very cool that they discovered and preserved relics and ruins on this site Jim.
