Point of Interest

Mrs Macquarie’s Chair

Australia / The Pacific

Mrs Macquarie’s Chair is a bench carved out of exposed sandstone rock, located on a peninsular in the Domain, near the Royal Botanic Gardens.  It was hand-carved by convicts in 1810 for Elizabeth Macquarie (1778-1835), second wife of Governor Lachlan Macquarie (1762-1824).   Elizabeth Street is named after her.  

This was her favourite spot to look out across the harbour and serves the same purpose today for visitors who take a moment to rest there.
