#12 of 65 in Parks in Melbourne
The landscape of Sherbrooke Forest is dominated by the Mountain Ash, the tallest flowering plant in the world. Instated as a park in 1958, the once forested trees became protected foliage along with its flourishing population of superb lyrebirds, whose recognizable song and flashy tail feathers are iconic for Australia. Take a short hike through the dense forest and smell the fresh eucalyptus that accompanies the lyrebirds joyful trilling.
