Loved the walk through this reserve as sometimes you walked among giants of trees! The roots were almost as tall as I was. We ended up overlooking the ocean before going back through the forest. I really want to go back and do it again. We also found wild limes.

A great walk down to Rocky Point. It was years since I'd walked through here. It's steep in places but I'm quite unfit at present and survived it so really anyone could do it. My husband's first time and he loved it!

Lovely walk through trees to the sea. Wonderful views of the blue ocean and the waves crashing on the cliffs. Spectacular coastal views and peaceful wooded area.

The One Hundred Acres Reserve is great for bushwalking and seeing various native birds. One has to be careful whilst walking on the cliff as the mutton birds have created their nests in holes and it is easy to fall into. The Norfolk island pine forest is beautiful

It was a delight to walk in the Hundred Acres Reserve. Apart from the picturesque Rocky Point with its crashing waves, there were magnificent fig trees on this short walk (and opposite in New Farm Road). Unfortunately, the only mutton birds we saw were dead ones.

The walk to Rocky Point lookout was a special highlight for me...I walked down mainly in light drizzle...got to the lookout...the sun came out...a double rainbow was formed...obviously I took some very special photos of this view! Loved it. Be warned...a certain level of fitness is required as you mainly walk back uphill.

If you love nature, this is a great place to visit! The walk is lovely and you will see many plants flowers and animals that are only endemic to this magnificent jewel of the Pacific! Highly recommended!

The reserve is well presented with well mown tracks in part but can be a little confusing if you are not familiar with the topography although it would be difficult to lose your way altogether. A very nice area with spectacular trees and towards the end of the walk spectacular ocean views from the clifftop at Rocky Point. A warning... More

Watch out for the wasps at the entrance.Nice walk through the trees on a rocky healand. Plenty of nesting birds overhead. No toilet. Spent a peaceful morning here. Opposite Norfolk Blue.

Great for a short walk (about an hour return - easy walk) to the cliff tops where you can see mutton birds.
