Restoring Sydney’s Heritage Landmark

Following an extensive two-year remediation programme that spanned 98,000 working hours, The Fullerton Hotel Sydney has restored the intricate façades of the much-loved landmark.

The detailed stoneworks and carvings include figures representing New South Wales, Great Britain and Queen Victoria, and depict lives in the 19th century. The General Post Office Clock Tower is another heritage feature that has been restored. Soaring 83 metres above Martin Place, it features one of the city’s last remaining ‘Eternity’ inscriptions, written inside a clock tower bell by legendary Sydney figure Arthur Stace in the 1940s.

The remediation programme represents the hotel’s continued commitment to preserving and conserving the GPO building. As an advocate of heritage conservation, we strive to reconnect locals and future generations with this historic gem, as well as to share its unique story with everyone who visits The Fullerton Hotel Sydney through our enhanced heritage experiences.

To promote the hotel’s history and legacy, the hotel provides complimentary 90-minute Heritage Tours showcasing the building’s captivating history and architectural feats to both hotel guests and members of the public. Guests also get a chance to view preserved Tank Stream relics, from the watercourse that served as Sydney’s fresh water supply source from 1788 to 1826, located beneath the hotel.
