The Dolphin Fountain

The Dolphin Fountain can be found at the Fitzroy Gardens. It was unveiled in December of 1982 and it is by sculptress June Arnold. It consists of a pyramid of granite boulders and on them are assorted sea creatures like dolphins, octopus, crabs, sea horses, turtles, sea birds and shrimps.

    Teresa, I loved Fitzroy Gardens, and somehow I missed this lovely fountain. Melbourne is a lovely place – a photographer’s dream. Thanks for sharing, and you’re welcome for the feature. 🙂

      Yes, Marsha I saw your other posts and I didn’t seem to see this one. Have a good day my dear!

      1. Marsha says:

        It’s easy to miss things unless we sit on someone’s blog for a month. That’s one reason I love doing the interviews. I get to sit on a blog with the person and go through and see their favorite posts, then go back afterwards and give everything a good read.
