A building with such rich history of its existence. Affectionately known by some as "The Con". For a building that had gone through different lives, as Governor Macquarie's first Sydney residence to its demise with only the Stables left. It's a tribute to Colonial Gothic Picturesque style. The original Conservatorium High School commenced in 1919.
Best library in Sydeny. A spectacular band and one of the best music schools in the world. Amazing! Has the Botanical Gardens for it’s playground..
