  Fountain in Hyde Park
by llauraa

Hyde Park is a large and picturesque area East of the main CBD area [South of the Bridge] and not a far walk from the 'Cant-miss -it Opera House'. From here you can almost turn 360 deg and see all the other points of interest in the area: St Mary's Cathedral, Macquarie Street - which is a lovely historical walk where you can find our old parliament house [ still in use by government offices] and of course the main shopping centre. You can see Centrepoint Tower - also a ' Thing to Do' From the park, it is also a short walk to Art Gallery of NSW, the NSW State Library and if you continue north towards the Opera House from the park, you will come across the entrance to the Royal Botanic Gardens. The best thing about all these parks and gardens is that they are free, and some of the City's most gorgeous landscapes and harbour scenery

Address: South East end of Macquarie Street
Directions: Central to Southern Foreshore landscape of Sydney City. Can alight at St James train station on the " City Circle" line
