Government House Sydney / Sydney Historical Buildings, Royal Botanical Gardens

Have you often wondered where Government House was and what it looked like inside?

Sydney Observatory is located on a hill now known as Observatory Hill at The Rocks beside the southern end of the Harbour Bridge. The site evolved from a fort built on 'Windmill Hill' in the early 19th century to an astronomical observatory during the 19thC. Now a working museum where evening visitors can observe the stars and planets through a modern 40 cm Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and an historic 29 cm refractor telescope built in 1874, the oldest telescope in Australia in regular use.
