Living not that far from the Sherbrooke Forest in the Dandenong Ranges, it was with some amusement that we watched the visitors at Grants photographing and feeding the white cockatoos - the very same beasts that have eaten away half the cedar window frames in the hills. That aside, Grants is the starting place for some great rainforest walks that are truly a photographers' treat. Ferns, towering gum trees, fungi and, if you are lucky, the elusive Lyrebird. Unfortunately on this occasion, even though the two of us were cameras at the ready, the Lyrebirds were nary to be seen - except as an emblem for the local hills Shire. Suggest you visit early to avoid the tour buses if you are intending to visit the Grants restaurant and gift shop, but outside the forests are so extensive that it is easy to find a quiet track to walk.
