Sherbrooke and Sherbrooke Shire

Sherbrooke is a small locality adjoining the Sherbrooke Forest in the Dandenong Ranges, 35 km east of Melbourne. The forest was part of a timber reserve, most of which was excised for selection in 1892, and the retained parts comprised the Monbulk Forest Reserve and the Sherbrooke Forest. Sherbrooke was named in 1894 after the Canadian birthplace of an early European settler, R.W. Graham. Before then it was known as South Sassafras.
