Constructed by convict labour in 1819, by order of Governor Lachlan Macquarie, the Barracks design is by architect Francis Greenway. It was built as the main male convict barracks in New South Wales and was lodgings for convict men and boys who worked in government employment around Sydney until it closed in 1848.
