Hyde park is in a great location, very well maintained. My accomodation was just over the road, my room was facing the park views never to be forgotten. Easy to get there station just outside the park.

Wrack your brains over the large chess set in the north and pay respects to the war memorial in the south. Very beautiful views from the Archibald Fountain, especially that of St Mary's Cathedral. Grab a homemade popsicle from the push-cart near-by!

Was walking by here watching local workers playing bat and ball with a shovel. It was really refreshing and enjoyable to share in their exuberance for life.

It is a bit unsafe at night, hence the low vote. I still love walking through it. I am canadian and still get a buzz out of seeing wildlife, and in the centre of town. It has never let me down. St james station and...More

Great place to relax on a sunny day. Why eat lunch in a shopping mall, when you can buy take away and eat it here?!? I'm so glad that Sydney's planners included this lovely big park in the middle of the city.

Has a beautiful fountain, nice place to sit and have your lunch. Some homeless people sleep in this park at night so don't trip over them.

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
