Fountain Series: Fun – The Tank Stream Fountain

Where Alfred Street meets George Street, behind Circular Quay and its bustling ferries, a fountain meanders from pool to pool. Sculpted animals peep out from pipes and are caught frozen in time while going about their business. This is Sydney’s Tank Stream Fountain — and I defy anyone not to smile at the quirky animals in this fun fountain.

One end of the fountain has a special area at the right height for children for view.
