Hyde Park, Busby’s Bore Fountain

The Busby’s Bore Fountain is located in northwest corner of Hyde Park North. It was designed by John Byrom and installed in 1962 to commemorate the Busby Bore, a tunnel built to bring water from the Lachlan Swamp (now Busby's Pond in Centennial Park) to Hyde Park. John Busby, a mineral surveyor and civil engineer identified the Lachlan Swamp as a potential source of water for the city after completing a survey of existing and potential sources of water in 1825.
