"To Sail, To Stop" celebrates the initiative of Viscount Sydney who sent the First Fleet in 1787 and after whom the city is named. It also commemorates a settlement that had reached the status of city in 1842, adopting the sailing shipand the anchor in its Coat of Arms.
This statue has been made with the support of the Chinese Community to mark their contribution since the early days of the City. In a wider sense "To Sail, To Stop", symbolizes all those who have travelled and who have chosen to stay.
