About The Governors Table

The Governors Table is a modern interpretation of its foundations capturing significant and historic Australian design elements sympathetic to the site.  The use of stone, timber and steel reflect the materials used to build “The Edge of the Trees” installation in the museum’s forecourt, a forest of 29 massive pillars which represent 29 Aboriginal clans from around Sydney. Scandinavian influences have modernised the interiors, bronze and copper mirrors adorn the walls, modern timbers overlay the bespoke driftwood used throughout the bar and dining space
