Holland Memorial

If you go to the main car park at Settlers Park and look down the cliff you will see Holland Dam. The easiest way to get into the park is to take the tar-surfaced walkway on the right hand side of the car park down into the valley. As you walk down and the buildings on the opposite side of the valley disappears, its hard to believe that you are still in the heart of the city. To get to the dam you have to take a left towards the Bay down at the t-junction. Not long after crossing the stepping stones over the river you will find the Holland Memorial and lecture-theatre, erected in commemoration of the well-known naturalist Fred Holland, on the banks of the dam. It is the ideal spot to sit and have a picnic while listening to the birds calling around you.
