Hyde Park

Australia’s oldest Park right in the

heart of the city

Sydney’s Hyde Park is in itself a fascinating piece of history as well as being one of the finest parks in the land. It is 16 hectares of lush grass and massive trees divide into two with significant monuments in serene locations throughout the grounds. Sydney’s Anzac Memorial and Pool of Reflection dominate Hyde Park South while the Archibald Fountain, a gift from JF Archibald who also gave us the Archibald Prize for Portraits, stands magnificent in the North. A day in this part of town is simply not enough. Hyde Park is surrounded by the most significant landmarks Sydney has to offer. Within touching distance of the park you’ll see The Museum, Hyde Park Barracks, The Mint, Sydney Hospital, Parliament House, St James Church, St Mary’s Cathedral, The Domain, Cook & Phillip Park Aquatic and Fitness Centre and a host of other fascinating points of interest. Great thing is, you can keep going back to the comfort of Hyde Park for a breather!
