One of the greatest landmarks in KingsCross is the El Alamein Memorial Fountain. Not only does it artfully gush out water, but it also stands as a war memorial as well. You'll find it at the entrance of Fitzroy Gardens, right on the corner of Darlinghurst Road and Macleay Street.

The fountain commemorates the Australian soldiers who fought and died during the Second World War in the two battles at El Alamein, Egypt.

Elizabeth Bay House

Address: 7 Onslow Avenue, Elizabeth Bay 2011

Elizabeth Bay House used to be 'the finest house in the colony'. Blessed with a 54-acre garden and the best in Aussie colonial architecture, the Elizabeth Bay House still stands, as glorious as ever. Inside you'll find an 1839-1845 style refurnishing that depicts the life of the Macleay’s and gives you a clear picture of life in Sydney in the early 19th century. The grandness of the place is pleasantly overwhelming. A feeling you must experience for yourself!
