Great hideaway in Randwick. Have passed it many times and have not seen it. The walk was maintained nicely. Several parts have steep steps. A few local kookaburras on the walk. The walk is the only part left of rainforest in Randwick surrounded by houses/apartment.

Great to see (no pun intended) this little piece of Nature kept & named after a Great Australian ! Have been driving past it for over a decade & finally stopped & enjoyed ! The walk is on a mostly well maintained elevated walkway and several areas of steep steps. So while it's a short walk (approx 460 m) it... More

This reserve is well worth walking down once. It looks like a tropical oasis and people will think your photos were taken on a tropical island.

It's lovely a lovely little walk. I was hoping for it to take at least half an hour but was about ten minutes or less- nice short escape from the surrounding houses/apartments

This tribute to a wonderful human being just couldn't be better. Fred Hollows was such a humanitarian and the work he did was unbelievable. The reserve is full of wild life and native plants. Definitely worth a visit.

This beautiful reserve is a serene plane where you can step out out of the busyness in to nature. There is a walking track and you can see many native australian fauna and flora.

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.

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!

Just off Alison Road and linking through to Clovelly Road, it is well worth strolling though this secluded gully. The well maintained walkway through the valley which has been lovingly regenerated over the years. A number of spots for sitting and reflection and to forget the troubles of this world.
