    Mount Dandenong Arboretum

    by iandsmith Updated Dec 11, 2011

    I next drove up to the nearby Mount Dandenong Arboretum. Here there is a carpark, a picnic table and little else save the trees, of which there are 16 hectares of deciduous and conifer varieties. Should you walk among them you may reach a dirt road below and that track you see immediately across the other side is the Mechanics Track, a 2km trail linking the Mount Dandenong Tourist Drive with Olinda Falls.
    This place is open all the time and seldom visited mainly because there's not a lot there apart fromt the trees and a lone picnic table.

    Sherbrooke Falls

    by iandsmith Written Dec 12, 2011

    If you’re into walking then I’ve also done the Sherbrooke Falls walk although at around 40 easy minutes this is more of a short stroll than a full on bushwalk. Nonetheless, at the popular picnic area where you park, you cannot fail to be impressed by the tall gum trees (Eucalyptus regnans a.k.a. swamp gum in Tassie). You pass through these at the start of the walk and drift along until you loop around the falls over a bridge. Best viewed after rain if you want to see plenty of water, it is an easy track to follow and walk on.
    Don't expect a lot at the falls, it's only a little creek but pretty nonetheless.
