The curious case of Macquarie & Greenway

Two hundred years ago, the Governor of NSW joined forces with an infamous convict. Their mission: to transform the penal colony of Sydney into a handsome colonial town.

In a few short years, Australia’s first major architectural achievements would be realised. From sophisticated churches to gothic castles, and armed fortresses to elegant obelisks. Sydney’s skyline would change forever and so would its place in the world.

But behind these grand structures lay a very human story. One of dreams, defiance and an unlikely partnership between two proud men.
