Victoria Park, Sydney
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.
The Gardener's Lodge adjacent to City Road was used as a toilet block for a long time, but eventually was restored and turned into a café. The Lodge and the sandstone gates nearby originally guarded the eastern edge of the University grounds. They are heritage-listed along with the University and its grounds.
