Another architectural gem – complete with castellans and turrets! The Conservatorium was once the horse stables for Government House. The extravagant building costs is said yo be one of the reasons Governor Macquarie was recalled to England.
I visited this when it was closed unfortunately, but the view with the moon in the background was beautiful (see photo). The building and the turrets was just so pretty on a moon lit night. I'd love to see inside next time though.
The building of the Conservation of Music is very attractive. It was built in 1915 and it looks like a castle. Many tourists take a detour to see it, so that they can have a picture of it.
I was told that they gave great...More
Hard to believe that the Conservatorium of Music was once the horse stables for Government House. We've been to the big hall THE VERBRUGGEN on many occasions and it is splendid for music concerts. Last Sunday we attended a brilliant performance by young children of...More

The Con as it is known is right near the Royal Botanic Gardens and a short stroll up from the Opera House. It is housed in the old Government House Stables (Government House is next door) and has a new extension beside it.
Came here last week for a musical workshop, and it's beautiful! In the choral assembly the acoustics are one of the best that I've heard and the grounds all over the Conservatorium are kept to high standards. It looks like a castle and is a...More
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.

Hi there are "Lunchtime Concerts" held every Wednesday & Thursday at 12.30pm - During SCHOOL TERM ONLY - I must emphasise this as most of the concerts are performed by students - they too need holidays - so make sure you check before coming to the Con. This can be done by going to the Sydney university Conservatorium of Music website or just type in Mr Google "What's on at the Con" The lunchtime concerts are actually 'gold coin' donation - you do not even need to make a donation if you dont want. Most people are very happy to donate a $1 or $2 coin for what is always a great 40 - 60 minute concert. I hope this answers your question
