Foden Track hike, Sherbrooke Forest

On June 19 2010 I went out to the Sherbrooke Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park, 35 km east of Melbourne town.

My 3 km hike started and finished at the small car park off Grantulla Rd, in the Kallista district, at the junction of Foden Track. I followed this track to its end through beautiful ferns and tall timber, reaching Neumann's Track.

From there, I continued past Brendon's Corner forest, then into Wallaby Paddock, my turnaround point.

This is a lyrbebird habitat, and one was seen scratching in the bushland.

Wallaby Paddock was formerly a potato farm many years ago, dating to the 1940s, prior to its acquisition by Parks Victoria. Furrows still exist in the paddock!
