The Conservatorium of Music, in Sydney's Botanic gardens, was originally the stables of Government House. I took this view across the gardens and conservatorium, looking towards Farm Cove, the indented waterway on a recent visit to the 8th floor office of the Royal Thai Consulate in Macquarie St. Farm Cove was the site of the first farm established by the First Fleet arrivals in 1788.


  1. Very impressive stables, but then horses cost money. Would love to be able go to a concert there.

  2. Amazing photo. Reminds me of 19th century paintings of Sydney harbour. I'm so blessed to live in Sydney!
