Sherbrooke Falls Hike

The old weir

Sherbrooke Falls

I was in the Sherbrooke Forest, 25 km east of the Melbourne CBD, on Wednesday afternoon July 29, 2009.

My trip was to look for the original Weir, which had been built across the Sherbrooke Falls, around the year 1940.

Success! Its remains were discovered adjacent to the Sherbrooke Track, almost hidden in thick growth, just up from the Sherbrooke Falls.

My 5 km circuit exploration started at the Ferny Creek Picnic Ground car park, then along Hackett Track, Edgebrooke Track, Sherbrooke Track, Ridge Track, the Falls, Edgebook Track, Moore Firebreak Track, and back to base.

Sadly, the Falls are now only a trickle, due to the drought.
