El Alamein Fountain
The El Alamein Fountain is in the Kings Cross area of Sydney, Australia near the entrance to Fitzroy Gardens. The fountain is a memorial to those who died in the two battles that took place in El Alamein, Egypt during World War II. These battles which were fought in 1942 are considered the turning point of the Western Desert Campaign, as Allied Forces were able to halt the Axis movement into Egypt. The El Alamein Fountain was designed by Bob Woodward, an architect and army veteran, who completed the fountain in 1961.
- Visit the El Alamein Fountain in Sydney at night, when the modernist structure is lit up, revealing the water that cascades down three levels, making for a beautiful sight.
- Take a stroll through Fitzroy Gardens where the El Alamein Fountain is located, and enjoy the well-kept paths that are flanked by lovely plants and flowers from around the Sydney area.
- Head to Kings Cross weekend market near the El Alamein Fountain on a Saturday for organic produce and small bites and on a Sunday for vintage clothes, second-hand books, and antiques.
Kings Cross and El Alamein Fountain can be reached via the Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra line of the CityRail, just outside the City Circle. Once visitors get off the King Cross Station, it is just a short walk north on Darlinghurst Road to El Alamein Fountain. Visitors can also use the Sydney Bus, as there are many stops near the fountain, including at Greenknowe Avenue and Darlinghurst Road, both of which are within walking distance to the memorial.
