Visit the oldest public park in Australia, Hyde Park. From the very early days of the colony, the open area was a top spot for sports such a cricket, rugby, and even organized bare-knuckle fights. Today, it remains an ideal spot for a morning jog or a stroll among fig-lined avenues in the park. The gardens are well-kept and home to approximately 580 trees. There are many monuments to stop and see, such as the Archibald Fountain, the ANZAC War Memorial, an obelisk with Egyptian features, and a monument to Captain James Cook. You can do what the locals like to do, grab a latte, people watch, or read a book on the grass.

在繁忙的雪梨市中心，能夠有這一片的空間，有點像紐約的中央公園，讓市民在忙碌的工作中，午飯時間在此透氣，花園很美麗。 聼說這裡於晚上是蝙蝠的集中地，但未有機會到訪。 more »In the busy city centre of Sydney, you can have this space, a little like the Central Park in Newport, so that the public in the busy work, lunch time in this air, garden is very beautiful. Listening said it was a bat concentration in the evening, but there was no chance to visit.
Lovely trees to sit under amongst the meandering roots. A constant symphony of insects and birds filling the air. You can be surrounded by people but at the same feel a satisfying solitude. The sheet of water in front of the memorial is also a beautiful place to take photos or just watch the reflections. Good wide running paths.
Nice city park with the smell of China Town near by. Take a train from nearby Martin Place to Town Hall and have a relaxing stroll towards Darling Harbour. Hyde Park is an ideal place to show of some of your magic tricks to walkers/joggers.
