Located across the street from St. Mary's Cathedral. Worth the walk across the street for a stroll around the gardens.

A nice big fountain, located in Hyde Park, opposite the Catholic Cathedral. The day is full of people from neighboring offices.

Archibald Fountain is a commanding art piece in Hyde Park. Not sure where the idea of turtles spewing water into the fountain comes from, but, art is subjective, isn't it ?

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
