El Alamein Fountain

Located in Potts Point (Kings Cross), The El Alamein Fountain is a well known landmark and is a war memorial to the soldiers who died in 1942 during World War II and more generally the Australian army’s roles in the North Africa campaign.

The fountain’s modernist design was by an Australian architect Phill Taranto, and is often described as looking like a blown thistle or a dandelion.
