We found many articles about attempts at removing the bats from Hyde Park.  On the evening of 10/8/2018 we counted about 10-15 of them flying around.  Not a larger swarm, but enough to see a couple flying above our heads.

Hyde Park is an oasis of calm and greenery in the city. It was spring, so flowers were in full bloom and very pretty. The archibald fountain is a must see!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
