We found many articles about attempts at removing the bats from Hyde Park.  On the evening of 10/8/2018 we counted about 10-15 of them flying around.  Not a larger swarm, but enough to see a couple flying above our heads.

If you have only one day of time, Hyde Park is a good place to start. A Hop-on-hop-off bus fare will costs you AU$55. From the Hyde Park, there is a 3-hour bus tour, costs you AU$18. (See attached map). Before and after the tour, you can visit Royal Botanic Garden, the Opera House, the Rock or climb the Harbor Bridge. This will fill your all day.

Hyde Park is the oldest public parkland in Australia and is located in the central business district of Sydney. We saw the Archibald Fountain. Take a few minutes to walk around the fountains and look at the different statues. The fountain commemorates the association between Australia and France in World War 1. There is a statue of Queen Victoria. A very interesting sculpture of sandstone is "Water, Fire and Earth". The inscription on the plaque nearby reads as follows: The labours and beauty of pioneering mankind are depicted by three figures Water, Fire and Earth and a flanking font. Water - A fisherman looking to the seas and new horizons. Fire - A woman depicting womanhood and intuition protecting the fire of initiative and progress. Earth - A farmer depicting the pioneering efforts upon which the country has developed. Looking at the sculpture you are not sure what it means until you read the plaque. We also took a few minutes to just sit and take in the beauty and sounds of the park.

This is right in the heart of Sydney. Expertly manicured lawns and flowers all tended to with care. Birds walking casually around with no fear. This is a lovely park, very pretty.

Beautiful park. A number of tourist spots are near the Park. St Mary's Cathedral, war memorial, Botanical Gardens. Great for sitting with coffee and watching the world go by.

Hyde Park is an oasis of calm and greenery in the city. It was spring, so flowers were in full bloom and very pretty. The archibald fountain is a must see!

Hyde Park was as good as ever during our recent visit to Sydney. It was fairly mild winter weather and ideal for perambulation. The ibises were out in force scouring the rubbish bins as well as exhibiting more attractive behavioural traits.

This park is centrally located near the Royal Botanic Gardens, Circular Quay, and many other sites. It's nice to walk or run through and is very clean. There are cool monuments/statutes and fountains to take pictures in front of. Bring a picnic or just walk through on your way to somewhere else
