Darlinghurst, Taylor Square

This fountain above is located in Taylor Square, in the inner city suburb of Darlinghurst,  view of Oxford Street looking east can be seen below. The city hosts one of its biggest events tonight, the annual Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade. The parade route runs from the city beside Hyde Park, along Oxford Street past Taylor Square at Darlinghurst and then down Flinders Street to Moore Park.


  1. Is the parade at night? I've never been to a Mardi Gras Parade - I think they get a litte crazy. Be careful if you go!

  2. Thanks for visiting my SWF post. Yes, I had to laugh too; our profile shots are very similar. How funny! Mine was taken on Lopez Island, WA., on the 4th of July a couple years ago. I was just so happy to be in such a beautiful spot that I couldn't refrain from showing my joy! Love your blog. I'll be back!

  3. Sure did not look like this last night! Absolutely jammed with people and littered with smashed glass.

    More heteros there than gays ...

  4. Yes Nancy, the parade is at night. I don't think it gets too crazy but I believe the afterparty at Moore Park can be a bit wild though.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
