Wallaby Paddock hike, Sherbrooke Forest


Wallaby Paddock is in the Sherbrooke Section of the Dandenong Ranges National Park, about 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

It is the site of a former potato farm of the 1940s.

It is reached from Grant's Picnic Ground, on the Belgrave-Kallista Rd, following the Hardy Gully Walking Track, then Neumann Track.

The route passes through lush ferns and tall mountain ash, through mainly regrowth forest.

I discovered a lyrebird and two Eastern Grey Kangaroos at Wallaby Paddock! At Grant's Picnic Ground there were the usual assemblages of parrots and cockatoos, having their afternoon snack of seeds purchased by visitors at the Kiosk!

There were also two white Long Billed Corinellas amongst the multitudes, not often seen here!

Many nice colored fungi had appeared along the tracks.

My visit was on Wednesday afternoon June 3. 2009, and the total walking distance was 4 km.

See all of the Photos of my visit!
