Victoria Square Fountain

                                                                                                      
                                       

Last Sunday, after our Easter lunch at parents’ in-law house, we went to Asian shop to buy some Filipino goodies, while it’s not dark I suggest to my hubby if we can drive straight to Victoria Square in the city as it’s public holiday not busy and no traffic, he don’t like going to the city due to crowds and traffic, for goodness we did. Victoria Square is like a small park good for relaxing; sitting on a bench and chat, some partner put a picnic blanket under the tree and rest. Taking photos of fountain is just fun as everyone does too. It’s the main city tourist attractions center of everything a foot walks only to Cathedral Church, Central Market or Chinatown food court and Rundle mall shopping center. Everyday you can see lots of people visiting the place. Some exhibits or council activities were held as well on special occasion

6 months ago, if I was not drop by my hubby to work, I catch a bus sometimes and stopped by in this place but since I got my drivers license and manage to drive my route change into a short distance and never stop here again. How I miss dropping here some time and walk on the main city shopping center for a coffee and window shopping while waiting another bus destined to travel to my workplace. It's been a while since the last time I've been here.


The history of the fountain.

Great shots of the fountain. It is very interesting.

My cousin just got back from a trip to Australia and had pictures of the fountain and how it lights up at night. Being the history buff she is she told me that the theme is the three important rivers that Adelaide draws its water supply from: Torrens, Onkaparinga, and Murray. Which resulted in a three sided water fountain with three different aluminum figures representing the rivers. She also said it was created by John Dowie who is a South Australian artist.

I love fountains, especially ones with a history like this one. Thank you for sharing it with us today.
