Queens Square
Queen's Square is a public square in central Sydney. It is located at the junction of King Street with Phillip Street and Macquarie Street. It is bounded on the south by St James Road and Prince Albert Road. Around Queen's Square, clockwise from the north, are the Law Courts Building, the Sydney Mint, Hyde Park Barracks, the Land Titles Office, Hyde Park, St James' Church, and Sydney Law School. These buildings, other than the Law Courts Building and Sydney Law School, are all heritage-listed constructions, mostly dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. Two statues are located in the square. One, of Queen Victoria, stands on the south- western corner, and faces northward towards the Law Courts building. The other, of Prince Albert, stands on the south- eastern corner, and faces across Macquarie Street towards the statue of the Queen.
