Starting near the car park on Coles Ridge Road, Sherbrooke, this walk loops within the Sherbrooke Forest via the Hall, Paddy, Welch, Yards, Ridge, Hackett and Lloyds tracks. Enjoy the majestic beauty of the rainforest on this peaceful walk, going through towering mountain ash and lush tree ferns. Stop at the Sherbrooke Falls to admire the cascading waters, where there is a viewing platform that offers the best view. The forest houses a wide variety of birds, including superb lyrebirds, kookaburras, rosellas, sulphur-crested cockatoos, king parrots and macaws. There are many picnic grounds along the way that provide a tranquil setting for a lunch break. The walk also passes by the Alfred Nicholas Gardens, known for their picturesque water features and iconic ornamental lake and boathouse. The trail is a mixture of small tracks, wide tracks, flats and hills. There are some very steep ascents and descents that require a reasonable amount of fitness. In rainy weather, the trail may get muddy. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
