While this site is amazing it will take you all of 2 minutes to read the plaque and review the foundations. Interesting to be there - and while your there visit the museum or have a drink at The Governors Table (established 1788!) both right...More
A plaque on some of the original stone (see photo) is all that remains of the original structure. The site now houses the Museum of Sydney which does feature an exhibit on the original.

A beautiful building and attended a presentation in 2010. A must see and it sets a beautiful portrait against the magnificient Sydney Harbour. The building sits on an excarpment directly above the Sydney Opera House. Don't miss a walk through the gardents.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
