It's a nice fountain, decent size, but not the most beautiful fountain in the world.

“History in a beautiful park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2011

JF Archibald, after whom the fountain is named, left funds to have the fountain built, way back in 1932. The fountain represents a link between Australia and France from World War I and was sculpted by a Frence artist.
The fountain is located in the north of Hyde Park, opposite St. Mary's Cathedral. It is a lovely, large fountain, with a central figure, Apollo, surounded by other, spralling figures. The fountain is a great place to hang out and relax, have a picnic, or take a few photos. When I was there, I saw a photography group discussing the best ways to photograph the fountain, so it seems to be a popular spot with the locals.
Hyde Park is a great spot to visit, and Archibald Fountain is beautiful.
