History of the Reserve

Freds Pass Reserve was founded on the philosophy of community effort and involvement. Much of its development is due to the dedication and commitment of volunteers who contributed their time towards land clearing, turfing field surfaces, construction of clubroom facilities and other structural initiatives that would consolidate the Reserve’s expansion.

Since inception, additional parcels of Crown land have been added including the 1994 purchase of a an existing 2-hectare residential mining lease that was independently situated centrally in the Reserve. The Reserve currently encompasses an area totalling 82.75 hectares.
