Nestled in the Mount Dandenong, Sherbrooke Forest is a great place to BBQ and gone for an easy walk to the small but very nice waterfall. Great for families and friend, good parking, toilets but no bins so you need to take your rubbish away...More

this is a moderately difficult hike with some steep sections, but mostly shaded. You will hear a lot of birds and see some wonderful trees and waterways. A great way to rejuvente yourself!
