You can lie in a hammock -
Dress up in convict clothes -
and Try on the leg-irons -
There was a database of the convicts that had passed through the barracks, and much to our delight, we found Billy's ancestor listed. It makes history far more personal.
Afterwards, we headed to Hyde Park for a picnic lunch.
And then over to the Australian Museum for a couple of hours. There's not much hands-on stuff to do, but the kids did find some :)
It was an exhausting day but well worth the visit.
