Whilst visiting the falls, visitors can also walk through the nearby Dandenong Ranges National Park.
The walking trail passes through the forested area containing the tallest flowering trees in the world. The area is abundant with Mountain Ash and a variety of fern species. With a number of trees and grasslands, the Sherbrooke Falls area provides a natural habitat for lyrebird species. Whilst walking across the grassy pathways, you may see or hear these beautiful birds in the forest.
During the rainy season, the falls look wonderful, thanks to the surrounding verdant forest and gorgeous rocky outcrops.
Visitors to Sherbrooke Falls can also have a picnic at the nearby O’Donohue Picnic ground close to Sherbrooke Lodge Road. The Mountain Ash forests also house a number of wildlife; including both ring-tailed and brush-tailed possums, native birds and a number of reptiles.
