“It was a wreck from the beginning.”
Catch up on our recent event – The Rum Hospital: the building that refuses to fall down.
Built from the shaky proceeds of rum importation in early NSW, and once home to colonial surgeons and a collection of stuffed birds – the story of our building has it all.
Join historian Paul Brunton as he delves deep into the Rum Hospital’s rich past, while Parliament’s modern-day project team, Lyndall Smith and Ryan Panton, share a behind-the-scenes look into our recent restoration work. With an opening address from President of the NSW Legislative Council Ben Franklin.
