4.3/5 based on 800+ 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.

  • This is such a beautiful park. We picked up some burgers and ate them in the park while people watching. Afterwards, we walked toward Archibald Fountain and took photos. The Anzac War Memorial was quite impressive.
  • Day and nite Always beautiful city beautiful trees, clean and well maintain......jogger welcome...... street musician sometimes show their talents here.....
  • Very peaceful park, much space even during summer. Many birds, and beautiful old trees that make you feel that you are far away from the city!
  • A beautiful Park with ample amounts of space. Plus there is some amazing structure there as well. All in all a fantastic nature reserve in the middle of the city.
  • Wonderful park with many pokestops for those Pokemon go fans. There's nothing really special about the park, except that it's a nice place for a stroll. It's not that large or impressive, but it's smack bang In the middle of the CBD so it's in a very convenient location. Park Street severs the park into two sections unfortunately.
