Two hikes in the Sherbooke Forest

On a cold and wet Friday afternoon, August 21, 2009, I went over to the Sherbrooke Forest, Dandenong Ranges NP, 35 km east of the Melbourne CBD. From Grant's Picnic Ground, Kallista.

I explored two interesting walking tracks - the Fern Tree Walk and the Margaret Lester Walk.
These were about 3 km total, and well signposted.

The Margaret Lester Walk has information signs, with reproductions of historical photos dating back to the late 1800s, describing the development of the area.

Grant's Picnic Ground is a world-famous destination, where visitors may enjoy the company of hundreds of corinellas, galahs, cockatoos, and parrots, which like to be fed! Seeds can be purchased at the nearby kiosk.

The birds are very tame and certainly know when the next tour bus is about to arrive!

See the image of a young man lying on the ground, knocked over by the weight of many birds!
