#12 of 33 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.

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
