The Fred Hollows Reserve is a local government–administered reserve that is located in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia.

The 2-hectare (4.9-acre) reserve is situated in a natural area in what was formerly known as Glebe Gully in Randwick. It is the result of conservation efforts by the Randwick City Council, since 1993, in a hilly part of the Coogee Basin. The park follows a gully from Alison Road to Clovelly Road.
The gully faces south away from the sun, forming a closed canopy and a relatively fire-free habitat, which contrasts with the nearby urban area and busy traffic.

  • Very peaceful place for a date, feels cool in summer there.
  • Lovely boardwalk and stairs through the gully. Often feels as though you are miles outside sydney. Plenty of rest seating along a reasonably vigorous walk with plenty of stairs. Local bush regeneration team is doing a good job maintaining true flora. The fauna is enjoying it, with plenty of native birds throughout.
