Today! Governor Lachlan Macquarie was sent to the colony to take control after the mutinous conduct of the NSW Corps. Power was transferred without bloodshed and in 1810 the new governor took over the reins and began implementing his vision of a colony worthy of the Empire. Macquarie's Kingdom provides an exciting and engrossing template for rediscovering the early Australian colonial past - by walking in the footsteps of Lachlan Macquarie and his contemporaries. Inviting us to take a walk around greater Sydney, Simankevicius' book is as much an ode to Macquarie as it is a travel guide to Australia's first city.
