Forrest Guesthouse

Red Brow Finches are usually found in small flocks, they are very quick and quite shy. In Forrest you can usually spot them along the walk beside the Barwon River below the spillway, or around Len Sprague reserve. #birdwatching

Here she is! The original guesthouse building with its original place and purpose! The Colac Central Bowling Club building was transported to Forrest in the early 90s and converted into a guesthouse. She’s seen a lot of change since these days but the familiar roofline remains.

These nicer spring days seem to have brought out the butterflies! I’ve seen a lot of different ones this year and most I have not gotten close to getting a photo of 😂 These are all just phone pics. We have a Yellow Admiral, an Imperial Jezebel (would love to get an open wing shot) and I think the last is called a Vanessa. There’s another one floating around that I haven’t gotten a good look at, large wings that are white or pale blue with dark edges - doesn’t want to come down to eye level! The challenge continues… 📸 🦋 #butterfly #explore #discover #slowdownandenjoynature

I captured this one. Can’t find a reference to it. Could it be a Jezebel? You can enlarge the pic. Also hunting for an open wing shot.

Did you know there are #platypus living in Lake Elizabeth? The easiest way to see them is to go on a kayak tour with Otway Eco Tours - don’t worry, they do all the paddling! However two lots of guests spotted platypus from the circuit walk over the last week! If you go at dawn or dusk, that is your best shot to see them.

Local tip: if you go at dusk, take a torch and wait till it gets dark then you can spot glow worms on the side of the track back. Once you spot a couple, turn your torch off for the best look. 😉

Some gorgeous colours on the Aquilegias this year. I’ve commonly had the plainer purple and pink grannies bonnets that self seed throughout the garden but at some point, I realised they must really like it here - I’ll get some more. These grew from a packet of mixed seeds and what a lovely surprise they were! Hopefully these also reseed everywhere! 😍 #countrygardens #aqilegias #granniesbonnet #explorethegarden #wander #relax
