This gentle walk to Sherbrooke Falls is a good introduction to the Dandenong Ranges, a favourite escape for Melbourne walkers and picnickers. The track begins near the main entrance on Sherbrooke Road and winds past rough and smooth tree ferns. Along the way you’ll see the region’s finest sassafras and mountain ash, some of them up to 200 years old.
