A landmark in Hyde Park but you can walk past it a hundred times and not know it was there. It has some historical meaning but means little to people today.

Not sure if there was any meaning to the fountain but the sculptures were pretty. It's just located opposite side of the road from the cathedral. Good landmark.

This fountain is a land mark. Build by one of Sydney's rich at a time when Sydney was flourishing and everything was new and happening.

It's a real part of Sydney and a good meeting location. It is lovely viewed from any angle. Love this spot. Opposite the iconic David Jones store.

A great place to stop and take a breath while exploring Sydney. Situated at the harbour end of Hyde Park this fountain contains statues of the gods and myths of ancient Greece. It sparkles during both day and night . Down side is that it sometimes there are so many tourists you have to wait to get some good photos.
