    Caption "A Different Perspective" exhibition. Simonetti's large statue of Captain Arthur Phillip, erected in 1897, dominates this view across the Botanic gardens to Farm Cove. This was the site of the fabulous Garden Palace, built in 1879 and destroyed by fire in 1882. Beyond the curve of the sea wall, the sheer legs at Garden Island can be seen just above Mrs Macquaries Point.
