My final stop on the Hop-on, Hop-off bus was at Kings Cross. At night it’s full of nightlife but during the day it’s quite a sleepy place. It feels like everyone is asleep or just waiting to come out at night to play.
The El Alamein Fountain is located at the entrance to the Fitzroy Gardens on the corner of Darlinghurst Rd and Macleay St in Kings Cross. It’s significance is that it is a war memorial to the soldiers that died in two battles at El Alamein in Egypt during World War 2. Some people say the shape is like a dandelion (which I agree with) and it won it’s architect an award in the early 1960’s. I love going there and just sitting and watching the water and the interesting people walking past.
