Macquarie Streetscape

Go beyond Sydney's museum walls, exploring Macquarie Street and its hidden histories from the old Rum Hospital to the Royal Mint. You'll follow cryptic clues in to some of the city's monumental state architecture and discover the colonial roots of one of Sydney's oldest throughfares.

A fantastic option to link both our Museum of Sydney trail and our Hyde Park Barracks trail in one epic adventure! The refreshment break on this trail closes at 3pm, so we recommend starting before 1pm if you'd like to take advantage of a stop!

This trail is FREE and you can add up to 4 team members.
