What people are saying:

The Sydney Mint, located on Macquarie Street in the heart of Sydney, is the oldest public building in Sydney. The public building was built in 1811-1816 and is currently the headquarters of the New South Wales Old Building Trust. A part of the building is open to the public for free, showing the history of the public building and the stone pillars and steles left over from the old Greek architecture. The open area is very small, and you can finish it in less than half an hour.

    Impressive building

    We went here on a walking tour. Otherwise, we might have walked past it barely noticing. That would have been a pity. Once we stopped and took the time, we realised that it was an impressive building....

    The Mint was closed when we were there, but the hallway was open so we went in. The building was open and beautiful although the museum was being renovated. The hospital nearby was interesting
