Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / New South Wales / Greater Sydney / Hornsby / Hornsby Water Clock
The Hornsby Water Clock, titled Man, Time and the Environment is a piece of kinetic sculpture, a decorative fountain and a functional clock in the Florence Street pedestrian mall in Hornsby, New South Wales, Australia. Unveiled in 1993, the sculpture was designed and engineered by Victor Cusack and constructed of bronze, stainless steel and glass by Victor and his foundry floor manager Rex Feakes. Construction, including alterations to the mall, cost over A$1 million and took two and half years; thereafter, chicken bones and other carelessly discarded items caused many breakdowns before the water filtration system was upgraded.Take the guesswork out of planning a Wahroonga vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

A wonderful clock when it was worling. A great pity that the council can maintain it in a working condition, it could become a tourist attraction.
