A UNESCO World Heritage-listed site in the heart of historic Sydney, the Hyde Park Barracks is an extraordinary living record of early colonial Australia.

Originally built to house convicts, the Barracks has also served as an immigration depot, asylum, law courts and government offices. Today it is a cutting-edge museum.

Follow in the footsteps of real people whose lives were touched by this place – male convicts, immigrants and women in need, as well as the Aboriginal nations that were impacted by colonial Australia.

Discover the stories of the Hyde Park Barracks through a self-guided Mandarin-language tour.

The Hyde Park Barracks experience uses immersive audio technology which is cleverly designed to make visitors feel as if they themselves have stepped back in time.

As visitors move around the museum, our technology can tell where they are and make sure that what they hear through the headset matches their location.

The self-guided audio experience is suitable for ages 8+.
