A Hike in the Sherbrooke Forest

The Sherbrooke Forest, 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD, is the habitat of the Lyrebird.

These creatures are very shy, and are only rarely seen, occasionally emerging from the forest and dashing quickly across the walking tracks.

I visited this beautiful forest on May 4, 2009, exploring the Monument and Lloyd Tracks, a distance of about 4 km, starting and finishing at a small car park on Sherbrooke Rd.

My journey took me through tall timber, over footbridges and a creek, and past magnificent fern gullies.

The day was overcast, cold, foggy, and very misty and mysterious in the dark forest. Sadly, no lyrebirds were seen!
