Abstract

Anglesea Barracks is the oldest continuously occupied military facility in Australia. In 2011, it celebrates 200 years since Governor Lachlan Macquarie first decided that a barracks would be built on the site. The Barracks is important for its association with Tasmania's military forces, but also for its place in the development of Hobart and as a place of national heritage significance. This paper will address its engineering and architectural evolution, as well as some of the engineers who were involved with the design and construction of its Colonial Georgian, Victorian and Federation era buildings.
