Hyde Park, Sydney
(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Hyde Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Sydney vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Break if using a Hyde Park can be leisurely walking from central station walk to the Opera House, even throughout the bench best is.

  • 雪梨市中心最大的公園,難得的綠地,其實沒有特別有趣,就是一般的公園,但在滿是高樓的市中心顯得難能可貴,也可以清楚看到雪梨塔,公園裡有紀念碑附近又有兩座教堂,到這邊走走到也不會太無聊。 
  • This is a small park, but beautiful maintenance. the war museum pool reflection is a good place to take picture.

  • What an awesome chillout place in the city! The peace and tranquility that is much needed in the busy CBD.
  • Nice park for everyone! Alot of people come here for lunch, always have people playing live music's. Sometimes you even get artist selling really nice paintings of their own.
  • Lovely park, nice to enjoy on a good day, beautiful church in the back drop, local street performers frequent here. Perfect for those days to lay on the grass, look up at the sky and do absolutely nothing.
  • An absolutely wonderful space. Great place to bring a book, sit on a bench (or lay out on the grass if it's a nice day), and read. Periodic events change the feel of it, but hard to turn noodle markets and such... certainly a place to go, regardless of what's in town.
  • It's a quite place in the middle of the city. Good place to relax and even get a picnic, has a beautiful building and good vegetation.
