Puckey’s Estate Nature Reserve is an important remnant of Wollongong’s heritage with a strong connection to the Aboriginal Wadi Wadi people that once used the land. Situated less than 1km from the Wollongong Central Business District, Puckey’s Estate was previously used as a salt mill by the late Courtney Puckey. The historic remains of the salt works and the Puckey’s homestead can still be found at  the southern end of the reserve.

The reserve is recognised as an Annex site to the Botanic Garden due to its extremely rare coastal dune system, containing several endangered ecological plant communities. Puckey’s can be entered via a pedestrian boardwalk located adjacent to the Fairy Creek Bridge on Squires Way North Wollongong, with a 1.5km natural walking track extending through to Elliots Road Fairy Meadow.
