  • Only stopped here to take a quick photo of the Emden Gun. Interesting to look at and easy to find in Hyde Park.  more »
  • Right next to the station, facing Oxford Street, there is a model surrounded by a cannon of not big modern ships.

  • As the Crow flies it's easy to get to. Emden gun is a relic of Sydney's colonial past. It represents our colony appears as a ships cannon. Also it points towards Taylor Square which is a place that you will find more relics.
  • This monument in the southeast corner of Hyde Park contains a 4" gun taken in 1914 from the German light cruiser Emden after it was defeated by the HMAS Sydney in the Cocos Islands. It's not very big.
