Emigrants Barracks

Timber huts on Bent Street opposite Phillip Street that housed government sponsored migrants on their arrival in Sydney between 1837 and the mid 1840s. Tents were also pitched to accommodate when large numbers of people arrived in ships. The Government Printing Office was also located in the same complex from January 1841.
