Amusement park and city centre in Sydney, Hyde Park is large city park bordered by many significant buildings and containing statues of famous Australians.

Hyde Park is Australia’s oldest park. It’s also one of the most well-known. With just over 16 hectares of wide open space in the heart of central Sydney, there is no shortage of lush grass if you want to claim a small piece of land for an impromptu picnic, or simply have a seat and take a breather. You’ll always be able to spot sunbathers clustered around in twos and threes, lazily soaking up the sun’s rays. There are also plenty of benches in the park if you want to put your feet up without ruining your Sunday best!

Hyde Park is home to hundreds of big, leafy trees that offer cool shade for a break from the sun. As well as some serious grass acreage. Several monuments stand guard in Hyde Park north, the most notable of which is the Archibald Fountain, a gift from JF Archibald, who also gave Sydney the Archibald Prize for portraits. You can’t miss the fountain. Look for the big water feature dripping in ancient mythology. A bronze Apollo is surrounded by horses’ heads, dolphins and tortoises.
