Well kept secret

I stumbled upon this lovely walk and was absolutely delighted to have found this hidden gem. So well hidden in fact that when I went back a few Das later, I couldn't find it!

Fed Hollows Reserve is over the fence were I stayed with my daughter. In the morning you get woken up by the birds up, there is a little creek that flows under the bridge.

A quiet secluded walkway off the busyness of Alison Rd, Randwick. It's hard to believe this secluded spot has been preserved between the high rise flats and houses all around. Don't tell too many people - the developers will get wind of it!

I regularly go here and take friends to walk through and get a glimpse of what paradise would have been like before the large developments.
