Brought my 13 yo son for a hike in the forest. It was a lovely walk with abundant birds and others; what forest should be. We started at about noon and walked about 3 hours. It was drizzling at first but began to pour halfway through but the birds kept chirping still and the sound of the cascades.

Fungi, Lyrebirds, Mountain Ash, Fern Trees - complete forest experience. It was drizzling at the time, so had to step carefully, but otherwise not an exhausting stroll. It does not seem to matter which entrance you use or which trail you choose, hard to be disappointed with what nature has to offer. Parking near any of the entrances is available.

After being "attacked" by cockatoos in the bird feeding area, we explored the nearby Hardy Gully Nature Walk. This is a 700m easy walk on flat ground, where the Parks Victoria website says will take 45min to make a loop. We finished the walk in a significantly shorter amount of time. We didn't linger in the forest as there was... More

This is one of many good parks to visit in the Dandenong Ranges and provides a pleasant place for visitors to walk and get a good feel for Australian bush. Weekends can be busy.

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.
