Botanic Gardens, Morshead Fountain

Morshead Fountain sits outside the Morehead Fountain Gate entrance to the Royal Botanic Gardens. The fountain was erected in 1966 in memory of Lieutenant-General Sir Lesley Morshead and the men who served with him. Morshead was knighted for his defence of Tobruk in World War II.

  1. This memorial fountain looks quite impressive, despite or perhaps because of its simplicity: vertical pipes from which water cascades into a circular little pool at the base.

  4. What a beautiful fountain - oh and an entrance to the Botanical Garden! Have you been in the Garden? When I lived in Southern California, that's where I got most of my flowers for my blog, because of the variety, and they look well taken care of:) Many thanks for being a part of SEASONS this week! and "see' you very soon!

    1. Jeannette, I often go down there for a walk in my lunch break because it's close to work. I was there yesterday.

  9. I bet it's a popular place to cool down when summer heat waves hit the city! It's a nice contemporary fountain.
