Sherbrooke - ODonohue Picnic Ground

Short walk

O'Donohue Picnic Ground sits within the Sherbrooke Forest, the largest section of Dandenong Ranges National Park.

A number of walking tracks, starting from the picnic grounds, enable you to discover some of the plants and animals of Sherbrooke.

Sherbrooke Falls

2.4km, 1 hour return. Grade: Easy to Moderate

Tracks leading from Sherbrooke and O’Donohue Picnic Ground provide the easiest walk to the falls through the attractive landscape of tall Mountain Ash and tree ferns. The falls are most inspiring after rain when the swollen Sherbrooke Creek rushes over the rocks.

Accessibility information

O’Donohue Picnic Area is a small area mainly used as a starting point to the Sherbrooke Falls walk. While this is the easiest access to the falls, the path has gradients in excess of 1 in 10 making it not suitable to people with limited mobility. The viewing platform for the falls requires the descent of a narrow staircase.

O’Donohues contains picnic tables of the square wooden design allowing roll under access for wheelchair users.

There is an accessible unisex toilet facility. The cubicle is large with wheelchair space beside the toilet and grab bars on the side and rear. The hand basin is also accessible.
