Dandenong Ranges: Victoria’s nature haven

Destinations

The fern–eucalypt association is the Dandenong’s signature. Every track or mountain road swooping down the flanks of the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, seems to reveal another lavish, frond-filled gully. Among them, Sherbrooke Forest is one of the prime strongholds of temperate rainforest, a haven of mountain ash, mountain grey gums, silver wattle, soft tree ferns, blackwood and southern sassafras. Far from the nearest road, the only sounds in the valley stillness are the distant screeches of sulphur-crested cockatoos and the gurgle of water from the creek below.
