Hyde Park, Sydney

4.4
#10 of 96 in Parks in Sydney
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Hyde Park and many more Sydney attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Sydney day trip website .

  • Hyde Park is in the center of Sydney, and my day's tour begins here, here is the ANZ Army Memorial Hall, but unfortunately in the construction, around the fence to break the scene, but no relationship, the park is very large, there are many places to see can go, in the green Matsuo in the light of the spray pool, do very taste, but also look at the history, From here is the absolute Sydney day out of the day, I started from this, to the Holy Mother's Cathedral, began my Sydney Walk for a day tour.

  • What a magnificent park. Wide walking paths with large trees which form a canopy over them. Plenty of benches to sit on and enjoy the surroundings. Great place for people watching. In the middle of bustling Sydney, here is a place to enjoy a quiet time. It's grand!
  • This. Place. Is. Beautiful. I love it, awesome for taking pictures, exploring different types of plants, or just walking around in general. There are no fees needed to go in, but if you want, there's boxes for donation to the garden. The plants and flowers are beautiful. But if you don't want to walk too much, then don't come here. Totally recommend.
