Hyde Park

Originally laid out as the city’s first racecourse, Hyde Park is now a place of sunny lawns and wide avenues shaded by spreading trees. At the quiet end of the park, near Liverpool Street, you will find the beautiful Art Deco ANZAC Memorial and the Pool of Reflection. In the offices below the memorial there’s an excellent ongoing exhibition, ‘Spirit of ANZAC’. At the busy end of the park stands the gorgeously kitsch Archibald Fountain, which commemorates the association of France and Australia during World War I.
