Hardy Gully Nature Trail
Hardy Gully has everything the Dandenongs are famous for, cool rain forest gullies and massive eucalyptus trees. Lyrebirds can very often be seen, go early in the morning or in the evening when it is quiet for more chance of seeing them without too many people on the trail.
This would have to be the easiest short walk in the Dandenongs. Parking at Grants picnic ground, walk past the bird feeding area and a little further on your right, the beginning of the track is clearly marked.
For anyone with either limited time, or no desire for longer walks – the Hardy Gully Nature Trail is one of the best short walks that can be found in the hills.
