A relaxing place to just sit and watch the passing parade: lovely classic sculptures, and nice to get a spray of water on a hot spring day

The Archibald fountain is an attractive large fountain in the middle of Hyde Park near the centre of the city. A haven for office workers at lunch time. I've always liked the fountain but I wouldn't go there just to see it.

Imagine if you will a classical allusion with great sculpture, cascading fountains, and surrounded by majestic buildings in the heart of a vibrant city. That's the Archibald Fountain for you; the gift of an enlightened philanthropic publisher - I didn't know they existed! - to the people of Sydney and all its visitors.

This is a Victorian fountain with some very oldfashioned statuary, but there are delightful turtles acting as water spouts and the whole effect is great fun.

There is something abut fountains and running water that is calming and memerising. The Archibald Fountain provides a tranquil feel in a bustling city. Great photo opportunities with the city skyline ine the background.
