Macquarie Place

Originally swampy mangrove land on the banks of the Tank Stream, the colony’s first water supply, this small piece of land is awash with historic relics.
The Obelisk marks the point from which distances to all places in the colony were measured. This sandstone monument was designed by Francis Greenway, who was sent to the colony for forgery and became Sydney’s first colonial architect. His legacy is visible in many of Sydney’s best-loved convict buildings. The imposing statue of Thomas Sutcliffe Mort (whose many achievements are listed on the plinth) looks out over Bridge Street, the premier financial street.
