The Victoria Barracks, situated in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs, began in 1841. Taking seven years to complete, this historic, late-Georgian complex houses the oldest surviving army barracks in Australia. The construction was supervised by Major George Barney, commanding the Royal Engineers, and features sandstone quarried on the site.

Visitors for Victoria Barracks can enjoy free guided tours, lead by volunteers once a week which consists of a thirty-minute band presentation, a one-hour tour of the complex and an optional visit to the Army Museum. The latter focuses upon the history of the armed forces in New South Wales and features a wealth of interesting objects such as weaponry, costume and paper artefacts.

Open: Thursday - 10:00 to 16:00
Admission: charge
