Found this walk underwhelming. The track was very muddy but this was to be expected. What wasn't was fallen trees to climb over and gaping holes that had been taped off. Felt like the area isn't really being taken care of. Then when we got to the waterfall it was very small and the area was overgrown. Only consolation was... More

We did the 7 kilometre round walk commencing at the cafe at Grants Picnic ground. Saw lyre birds and heard there amazing repertoire. Finished at the cafe with a slice of the French Vanilla- suggest you share one with a friend as it is amazing but very rich.

We took the Puffing Billy Steam train for a ride through this forest and the Dandenong Mountain Range. It is a wonderful way to see this part of Australia and especially good for train buffs.

The Dandenongs are hills that surround Melbourne to the East. The Sherbrooke Forest s a great remnant of what the Dandenongs once were. The Dandenongs are usual cool and moist, with ferns. You may even see a lyre bird.

It's good for travelers who seek some time alone with nature. Very peaceful to walk around and listen to all the different birds. There are also a few good restaurants near the forest where you can stop by after your walk.

The walk to the falls from the Sherbrooke Picnic ground was a beautiful walk amongst the trees and ferns. The falls itself was a disappointment. It is definitely not a falls. I found the view before the steps to the falls much more spectacular. The path was stroller friendly except for a few steps required to see the stream of... More

The Sherbrooke Falls are a lovely waterfall to view. The walk is fairly easy and not that far and you get to hear a lot of bird noises along the way. I was privileged enough to see a lyrebird and photograph it by accident. They are beautiful creatures and i was blown away by its presence. The falls did not... More

This was a beautiful walk through nature, however for the experienced bushwalker that I am, it was a bit of a let down. There were lots of people on the trail and at the picnic ground, so there was no opportunity to be alone in nature. The sorts of people who were going weren't prepared eg sandals/thongs, phones etc. which... More
