Lyrebirds in Sherbrooke Forest

On Tuesday afternoon August 4, 2009, I visited the Sherbrooke Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park, about 30 km east of the Melbourne CBD.

I parked at Grant's Picnic Ground, on the Belgrave-Kalista Rd, the followed the Hardy Gully Track to Neumann Track. Passing Hardy's Creek, I continued along Neumann Track, with a steep climb to the large cleared area at the top, adjacent to Wallaby Flat. This land was formerly a potato farm in the 1940s, prior to its acquisition for incorporation into the National Park.

I was delighted to see a beautiful lyrebird just off the track!

From there I returned to the car, via the Lyrebird Track, through the magnificent forest and ferns.

I passed other hikers, who were also looking for lyrebirds!

My trip was about 4 km.

Back at Grant's Picnic Ground, the usual assemblage of cockatoos, galahs and parrots has gathered, waiting for seeds!

Please see the full set of Photos of my visit!
