Macquarie Place Park

This heritage listed underground toilet is located at the northern end of Macquarie Place Park, in the city. Built in 1908, it has now been decommissioned and filled with sand, which preserves it and allows reuse in the future. The garden incorporates the above ground features such as the dome, walls, light, fence and decorative iron work used as a frame for climbing plants.
