Sydney - ANZAC - Hyde Park Memorial

An aerial view of Hyde Park near the C.B.D of Sydney city. This park area was originally used as a training ground and exercise area for troops during the 1700's. It was declared "public land" by Governor Phillip in 1792. Following this declaration, the land was used for recreational activities, such as cricket and horse racing. It was landscaped into parkland in 1810. The Anzac Memorial which is situated to the southern expanse of land, dominates the park. It was built to commemorate the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps which was created for service overseas during the Great War. The dome was opened in 1934 and houses a small yet interesting collection of militaria. Of particular interest is a small flag which was carried ashore on Gallipoli by Queenslanders of the 9th Infantry Battalion, AIF. This unit was one of the first units to land on the 25th of April, 1915.
