There is a small park here, dedicated to veterans. George St was one of the first wide thoroughfares planned through Sydney by Governor MacQuarie, it leads to Broadway, where Central Railway Station is and eventually becomes Parramatta Rd.
Note the clock tower of the old Sydney General Post Office GPO in the background. Now occupied by the Westin Hotel, its central location makes it an ideal place to stay when exploring Sydney.

The small park at Loftus St and Macquarie Place has artefacts on display, including a cannon from the HMS Sirius, a British Navy frigate that served as the flagship of the First Fleet, as well as its anchor.
Much of Sydney’s history began in this part of the city. The Rocks, Circular Quay and the Opera House are all within short walking distance of each other.
