The walk into the forest with really tall trees was serene and peaceful but the fall was pretty disappointing. It wasn't exactly a fall but a little stream that ran through rocks as we looked a it from a short bridge.

A great day out walking through the forest to the waterfalls. Keep an eye out for wildlife, especially the birds. Great place for a picnic. Really worth the trip.

There are several scenic walks, very serene and peaceful. Some extra signage may have helped us locate each walk but other than that would highly recommend.

If you book a coach trip with Grey Line or AAT Kings to Healesville, Puffing Billy or the Yarra Valley, your first stop will probably be here. You pull in to Grant's Picnic Ground where you will get a good taste of what the Dandenong Ranges has to offer. There are short walks among the ferns and towering mountain ash... More

Avoid the crowds at 1000 steps and actually enjoy a peaceful walk in the national park nearby. We have been 4 times and each time seen lyre birds, more parrots than you could poke a stick at and occasionally some fast moving swamp wallabies. A range of walks from 500m family strolls to longer 10-20km half days. A couple of... More

Sherbrooke forest is the best place to just walk and listen. There is so much wild life, you are never quite sure what you will come across. Lyrebirds nest on one of the tracks. I walk here with my family but run there on a Sunday morning also. If you are looking for a peaceful place away from the main... More

I loved it here. So many wild birds. You also get to feed them with a little tray. The birds have sharp claws that scratch your arms when they land on them so I would advise to wear long sleeves. But even without it was so much fun. I saw one guy with two on his shoulders and about four... More

There are beautiful walking trials that go into the forest where if you are lucky you will spot some Wildlife and you will come across Sherbrooke falls, It is also a good place for a picnic lunch, Plus a place to get to feed Parrots, Rosellas, and other types of Birds. Plus a Cafe to have a bite to eat.... More

A short stroll in Sherbrooke Forest is a great addition to any day trip into the Dandenong Ranges. Depending on your time of of day/week you might be lucky to find a little bit of serenity or the place full of day visitors. The forest is an easy few minutes walk from either the O'Donohue Picnic Ground or the Sherbrooke... More
