Starting from Sherbrook picnic ground and parking area this walk heads southeast along Sherbrook Track toward the falls. These are at their best after a longer period of rain. The walk partly meanders through forest and grassy area with short uphill sections. Enjoy the fresh air of the forest and be amazed by the giant fern trees, listen to the lovely waterfall before continuing your walk closer to houses and along roads to get back to the picnic area for lunch. 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.
