We sort of stumbled upon this memorial while walking through Hyde Park. There is no admission charge, and it is quite beautiful. It is all about peaceful reflection. It is currently being updated/renovated and is still open while improvements are ongoing. It's just a small memorial, but well worth a visit.

The monument stands in the middle of Hyde Park, simple in size, but has many meaningful symbols inside and out, and would definitely benefit from the tour guide given by of the knowledgable veterans that are happy to help.

The Anzac War Memorial (Hyde Park - Sydney) is not as grand as many, but I think it's power lies in this simplicity. The Rayner Hoff sculptures compellingly capture the pathos of sacrifice.

Most big cities around the world have their memorials to those who laid down their lives for the generations that followed. Sydney is no different in that the war memorial in hyde Park is a place of silent contemplation and though about all those who died protecting and defending this wonderful country which is Australia. Currently being renovated it is... More

The Anzac War Memorial is iconic and a must see. The area is beautifully maintained and the water is absolutely clean with Ibises, seagulls and pigeons all in the vicinity. Someone is certainly taking good care of this area as it was sparklingly clean. This is a lovely spot to just come and relax and contemplate.

While I was in town half the building was under construction, but the side with the reflection pool was still open to the public. Nice place to sit and enjoy your coffee just in from all the busy streets.

Saw the Anzac memorial while enjoying a nice walk through Hyde park in Sydney in December 2012. Located at the end of a large pool of water near the middle of the park.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
