Grade 3. Approximately 14km
This walk meanders along pathways and through the tallest flowering hardwood in the world, the Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans) with an understorey of a variety of fern species. The Sherbrooke area provides habitat for the Suburb Lyrebird which can often be seen or heard within the forest. The falls are most inspiring after rain, when the Sherbrooke Creek cascades over rocky outcrops. Our walk starts at Grants Picnic Ground, and explores a myriad of tracks and trails in the forest, whilst also dropping past the lovely Sherbrooke Falls.
The Mountain Ash forests provide the perfect habitat for wildlife such as Wombats, Swamp Wallabies, Rong-tailed and Brush-tailed Possums. Treecreepers, small birds that cling to the side of trees looking for a meal of grubs and insects can be seen foraging amongst the tree trunks. The beautiful and elusive Blu-Winged Parrot has also been sighted in the Sherbrooke Forest.
