The Wishing Well Fountain sits outside the Palace Garden Gate entrance to the Royal Botanic Gardens on Macquarie Street. The blue illumination was part of Giving Gardens, a display of growing plants and light projections for the Vivid Sydney festival. Governor Lachlan Macquarie declared part of his Governors Domain a Botanic Garden in 1816 and put up a wall to protect it. The Royal Botanic Gardens and Mrs Macquaries Road through it, were developed under the direction of his wife Elizabeth Macquarie.
