I went in from the north from Bligh Place and maybe the locals don't like people there because the entry to the path was blocked by household goods being thrown out, but I went around them and walked down the wooden steps through the gully....More

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

I go there a few times a year and enjoy seeing the tall rainforest trees and the number of animals there. You start at Alison Rd and you climb many steps as you go and you end up at Bligh Pl. It is a very...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

Stumbled upon this walk on our way back from Coogee Beach to our accommodation in Randwick. Really lovely walk, nice to get off the street and into a little slice of paradise! Some parts have quite a lot of steep stairs so you wouldn't want...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.

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. There are signs giving you details of plants, fauna and the history of the reserve. There was even a...More

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
