    Hydepark

    Hydepark was founded in 1810 by govenor Macquarie and named after the park in London. Once the colony’s first racetrack and cricket pitch.
    Now it is an oasis of peace in the middle of the busy citycentre witha grand avenue of trees and delightful fountains like the beautiful bronze and granite Archibald Fountain.
    The 30m high Anzac Memorial in Art deco style dates from 1834 and commemorates the Australians who were killed for their country. Inside the building you will find fee exhibition covering the nine overseas conflicts in which Australians fought and many lost their lives.

    Hyde Park, ANZAC War Memorial, Pool of Reflection
    A park and monuments commemorating the servicemen and women involved in the various wars that Australia has participated in. Would be a great place to bring a packed lunch and relax (and reflect).

    This park is a little natural refuge in the midst of city centre. It's a good quiet rest place after a long day of site seeing or what have you. It's a lovely place to sit and have a muffin whilst you're waiting for the airline offices to open :) This fountain is a bit of a central fixture in the park.

    Macquerie Street, north of Hyde park, is the old historic center of government in Sydney. The Mint, Hospital, old parliament and state library all stand beside it next to each other.

    We wandered upon the James Hilder reserve after having brakfast in Surry Hills. It's a nice little playground/park with plenty of trees, benches and open playing areas for children.

    Named after Hyde Park in London, this area was declared a park as early as 1792 and Australia’s first recorded cricket match was played here in 1804.

    Hyde Park.. A beautiful green oasis flanking the city. Nothing like a lovely stroll through this park.. especially nice after walking around the city all day.
