There is more than one tree
One Tree Hill Reserve (formally Berrima Road Reserve) is not easy to find but the journey to it is worthwhile as it takes you through the very leafy suburb of Donvale. As you meander, and they do meander, through these quiet streets, it is almost like a forest drive as the large house blocks are almost overgrown with mature trees.
The only facilities in the reserve were one park bench and a picnic table situated on the highest part of the hill, giving a pleasant view of the surrounding suburbs. It is said to be a popular spot for local residents to watch sunsets.
