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 ?

This is our favourite fountain in Sydney and we tend to judge all fountains by it on our travels, which is no surprise it is a French design, in the art-deco style. It adds to the beauty of the park, on a particular hot day...More

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
