Melbourne - Dandenong Ranges National Park
In 1987 Sherbrooke Forest,
Doongalla Reserve and Ferntree Gully National Park were combined to form Dandenong
Ranges National Park. Covering 3215 hectares, the park plays an important
role in protecting a population of famous lyrebirds and other fauna, as well
as protecting the forests and fern gullies of the Ranges. Since June 1997
Olinda State Forest and the Mt Evelyn Forest have also been included in Dandenong
Ranges National Park.
The 40 kilometre drive from Melbourne via Burwood Highway or Canterbury Road is approximately 1 hour.
