The walk through Fred Hollows Reserve is a quiet retreat and a 10 minute walk along a new boardwalk. There are a number of steps so this is not a walk for those with difficulties accessing stairs. It is quiet and intriguing to be in...More

Duck off from Alison Road onto the boardwalk and find yourself in a green sanctuary full of tall trees, trailing vines, croaking frogs, lizards, birds and insects and beautiful tranquility. It does have rather a lot of mosquitoes so beware. It's about a 15 minute...More

A very nice board-walk, quiet and a retreat from the hustle and bustle. Doesn't take long and wouldn't travel to do it. We happened to be in the area. Interesting information boards along the way.

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.

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.
