The Patch

The Patch is a mainly rural locality, 40 km south-east of Melbourne, next to the east side of the Sherbrooke Forest.

In the 1860s a timber-getter felled a stand of black-butts for palings, and the cleared area ten years later was found to be a grassed patch of land. It was named The Patch. A part of Monbulk has come under the locality now considered to be The Patch.
