This is a different type of fountain in the beautifal botanical gardens and next to the museum. Unfortunately it wasn't going when I was there so that was verydisappointing.

Fountain has been restored to its original beauty and is unlike anything else. Close to the entrance it is a feature of the Gardens and tours depart close by.

Beautifully restored to its former glory. Would recommend that you see this lovely fountain - fountain does not run at night but looks awesome lit up.

This Edwardian style cast iron fountain was built in 1911. It went through several locations before settling in 1996. Those are the basic facts for this beautiful fountain with dolphins on one tier, herons on the second and other water letting outlets around the sides.

There are those who love it and those who don’t. But it is a feature fountain and I like it. A park without a fountain is not so interesting.You decide!

These beautiful botanical gardens are an absolute 'must see' - a haven of tranquility and a feast on the eyes. Do not miss the hot house for the orchid display or the Native Flora & Fauna section. We could have spent at least 2 days...More

A must see (and hard to miss) sight in the Botanical Gardens. Have to time your photography if you wish to avoid hordes of Asian tourists each posing for a shot to send back home.

This fountain is lovely, but not worth going out of your way for. Enjoy if you're in the area, otherwise don't feel like you've missed out!

I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it but it’s in the Botanical Gardens so yeah, take a look. The Peacock refers to the person who built it, not any peacock as part of the structure

A lovely working fountain in the boat animal gardens near to the museum. Beautifully restored in recent years it is a delight with its dolphin and storks around a central column. So where are the peacoc’s I asked my wife? who then explained it was...More
