Scenic, Well-Kept Park in the Middle of Sydney

A very peaceful, well-kept park in the midst of Sydney's CBD, Hyde Park is worth a visit for some alone time or a picnic with friends/ family.

Awesome place to relax and relieve all your tensions. So many interesting landmarks nearby such as St. Mary's Cathedral and ANZAC war museum.

One of the nicest places to enjoy the freshness of the nature in a concrete jungle! Easily accessible by busses, trains to come through. A real refresher for CBD bound people.

Hyde Park was our first destination when we arrived in Sydney. Although it was raining when we got there, we still enjoyed walking through the park and just enjoying the clean, fresh, green surroundings.

This is a beautiful park, with gorgeous trees and gardens. I take a walk through here many days a year There is a cafe or you can take a picnic. You also have the war memorial at one end. It is a great spot to take a break from the hustle and bustle when you are shopping in the city.... More

Grab some lunch and pick a spot on the grass to drink in the views of the CBD right across the road. The Cathedral across the road, the fountains scattered throughout, the ANZAC memorial, so much to see and enjoy.

Well worth the walk through the park The Museum building is beautiful to admire as too is the reflection pool The park is big enough to get away from the city for a break We are staying at the Pullman on Hyde Park and it's so very beautiful over looking the park and walking to and from the city through...

A walk through and around this beautiful park is perfect to take in some history, beautiful gardens, benches to sit on and of course the bird life. I spent an hour exploring the gardens from the Japanese section to the War Memorial, to the beautiful fountain and then there are sights like the Catholic Church and the barracks. Great place...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
