Botanic Gardens, Morshead Fountain

Morshead Fountain sits outside the Morehead Fountain Gate at the Royal Botanic Gardens and opposite the State Library of New South Wales and the Shakespeare Memorial at Shakespeare Place. The fountain was erected in 1966 in memory of Lieutenant-General Sir Lesley Morshead and the men who served with him.
