Victoria Park is a large park in Sydney, situated on the corner of Parramatta Road and City Road, within the grounds of University of Sydney and across Parramatta Road from Broadway Shopping Centre. It contains a public swimming pool and Lake Northam, which contains a large fountain.[1]

A totem pole near the southern corner of the park was "presented to the people of Sydney in the name of the government and people of Canada on the occasion of National Timber Week, 1964". The pole was carved by Simon Charlie, a Quamichan man from Vancouver Island, British Columbia.[2]
