Explore the site of the Hyde Park Barracks to find out about a group of Greek pirates transported as convicts and discover more about the intriguing world of pirates and plunder.

This fun-filled program includes making your own pirate hat and solving the riddle of a pirate treasure map to discover where the treasure is buried!

Hyde Park Barracks, first opened in 1819, is the most important convict site in Sydney. It was the first convict barracks in the colony and an estimated 50,000 convicts passed through its gates between 1819 and 1848.

Now it’s been refurbished into a fabulous museum where you can discover more about Sydney’s convict story. During your visit you can swing in a hammock and try on some leg irons, and for kids there is a fun children’s trail you can take through the museum.
