Anglesea Barracks is one of Australia’s most significant historical military precincts. It includes the Guard House, Military Hospital, the two-storey Soldiers’ Barracks, Drill Hall and Military Gaol, many of which were designed by colonial architect John Lee Archer.
With buildings made of convict brick and local sandstone dating back to 1814, The Barracks is the oldest military barracks still in use in Australia and includes the country’s only nineteenth-century military prison.
On this tour you will wind your way through the Barracks and explore the rich military history hidden within the sandstone and convict brick.
