Australia: Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney

On Monday I got two postcards: one from Australia and one from Thailand.

The card from Australia shows the Irish Famine Memorial and the Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney. The Hyde Park Barracks were built between 1818 and 1819 to house convict men and boys. In 1991 a museum was established in the building. Since 2010 the Hyde Park Barracks are as one of the Australian Convict Sites on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
