The Mint

Once the South Wing of the old Rum Hospital, the site of the colony’s first mint is now the headquarters of the Historic Houses Trust. Besides a pleasant reading room there’s a good cafe on the upper floor with balcony seating and fine views of Macquarie Street and Hyde Park. The mint artefacts are now housed in the Powerhouse Museum.

Open 9am–5pm Mon–Fri; general admission free.
