Mrs. Macquarie's Chair Tours

This unique landmark—a massive rock fashioned into a cozy bench—was carved from sandstone in the early 1800s by Gov. Lachlan Macquarie for his wife Elizabeth. As the story goes, when the weather was warm and the sun high, Mrs. Macquarie loved to relax at the point of this scenic peninsula and stare out over the ocean.

Today, travelers enjoy a leisurely walk to Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair from the iconic Opera House or wander over to this historic attraction after a visit to the nearby Royal Botanic Garden. In a bustling city that’s alive with energy, the stone bench offers visitors a perfect place to unwind, relax and take in the some of the best views of Sydney Harbour.

Practical Info

Mrs. Macquarie’s Chair is located on a quiet peninsula near the Royal Botanic Garden on Mrs. Macquaries Road by Farm Cove. It is open daily from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Travelers can explore the site on the two-hour self-guided Domain Walk, which visits other public outdoor attractions as well.
