We didn't have time to explore the interior of the Barracks. Reading my guide book I have a better understanding of what this structure was used for and what is its main purpose now.

I was originally contructed to house convicts, later it was used as a hostel to house immigrant women and then used as a courthouse.

Currently, this structure is a musuem highlighting the building's history and Sydney's colonial life.
