Govenor Arthur Phillip Fountain

In the Royal Botanic Gardens, just off Macquarie street, is this ornate statue of the Captain of the first fleet and our first Governor. It is popular at lunchtime, nice grass and a sun trap. For a great site about this fountain go to this link. An interesting fact is that the captain's bones are missing. Has anyone noticed that (almost) all the statues of our mariners are facing towards the heads. Which one is not?
