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

Just a nice little walk part way through after a massive pub lunch. Never will get tired of the forest or any of it's wonderful surprises, even in winter it's beautiful.

Included on every organised tour to the Dandenong Ranges is this stop at Sherbrooke Forest. It gets pretty busy with tour coaches but the birds know they are going to get fed and you will see lots of them at very close quarters. Its fun to try and get the white Cockatoos or Red Rosellas to eat our your hand.... More

Our 5yo and 2yo loved the walk, the waterfalls weren't much to see but all the same the forest is gorgeous, big trees, lovely ferns. Great and easy trip from Melbourne, definitely going back.

I started my walk on a coolish Autmun foggy morning from the Grant Car Park entrance. Still being dark i had a headlamp to light my way and was the only one on this beautiful walk at this time (not surprisingly) and had the entire trail to myself. I walked clockwise following the Lyrebird walking trail and continuing on the... More

We visited Grant's Picnic Ground in Sherbrooke Forrest. We hand fed parrots and rosellas. They stood on our arms and heads to eat seed. We also saw an echidna just wandering around eating ants. Gift shop was great and well priced. A great outing for kids or overseas visitors!

Did this walk in the middle of a weekend day, yet despite many cars in the car park there were so few people on the walking track. Opposite the tea room there is a feeding area for birds which is where most visitors appeared to remain, happy in the company of about 50 cockatoos and a few Crimson Rosellas. There... More

The forest is amazing, with some of the tallest trees in the world! The Sherbrooke falls however are rather underwhelming. Not a bad walk though. Dress warm, it's cold even in summer!

Last month we visited for a day trip. It's very next to the Alfred Nicholas garden(nice place), when you enter car park crimson rosellas will welcome you. There is a good walk track going towards waterfall. Many good sports in between for photos and eyes pleasure. Waterfall was site was affected by big fallen trees when we went. Will definitely...

We parked at the Sherbrooke picnic area and walked past the waterfall down to the next road and back. Top part of the track was nicer than the bottom part. Waterfall is not worth looking at, signage is poor however the bird life is great, spectacular trees and we enjoyed our walk
