Hyde Park Barracks built between 1817 & 1819 by convict labour provided lodgings for convicts working in government employment around Sydney until its closure in 1848. It became an Immigration Depot for single female immigrants (many fleeing the Irish Famine) until 1886. From 1887 to 1979 law courts and government offices were based at the Barracks. It is now a museum.
