Need some green in your life? Get out of the city and back to nature. The cool fresh air of temperate rainforest, along with the lush green ferns and moss, will help you to relax, unwind and begin to lower your stress level. #shinrinyoku #forestbathing

The Otways Black Snail is only found here in the temperate rainforest of the Otway Ranges. It’s carnivorous! These were out in force on the track to Mt Sabine Falls. 🐌 🍃 💧 🌳 #otwayssnail

It’s great seeing announcements from our friends on the #otwayharvesttrail reopening! It’s been a tough year for a lot of small businesses and producers. If you enjoy wine, give Dinny a call to book a tasting during your stay at Forrest Guesthouse. ...

Overdue for a holiday with a friend? Three of our suites can be arranged as twin single beds. Split the cost and enjoy some much needed down time in the Otways. Get out in nature and have fun! Hiking, biking, and high ropes courses all within 15 mins of Forrest. Tag your mate, bring your bikes and make a plan!

How sweet is this female wren? Our garden is often frequented by these tiny friends but you have to be patient and sit still. Lucky that’s what holidays are for! Taking time out to sit in the garden and relax. Grab a book, sit under the trees and wait to see who visits the leaves above.... #birdwatching #fairywren

Our lovely guest Lynne-Michelle sent us this gorgeous photo from their visit to Lake Elizabeth last week. Cloudy, sunny, morning, dusk... it doesn’t matter when you visit, the beauty of the lake always reveals another side.

Currently you can’t make a holiday booking with people outside your household. 😞 But with four separate suites, you and your family/friends from regional Victoria can make separate bookings for the same weekend and then hang out together by the fire. 😃 Perfect! 😍 Conditions apply. Long weekend bookings available. Enquire now!

The Fire and Rain Conversation Series is designed to inform and empower bushfire-prone communities to live safely with fire. What does it take to build a bushfire-adapted community? What do you focus on? What do
you need to know and do to be prepared and make good decisions as an individual, household and community? We talk to the leaders in thinking and doing - share the latest science, ancient traditional knowledge and on-ground expertise, to help transform personal and community thinking
about how we live and thrive amongst fire. For bushfire-prone communities, agency executives, directors, community leaders, inspired
individuals and change makers. #communityresilience

Time for a sneaky motorbike ride to nearby Birre. My beautiful bike has been a bit neglected since I no longer commute across Melbourne! I think I need to take her out more as the weather warms up - I tend to go for my mtb or gravel bike when I’ve got a spare chunk of time but this was fun too! 🏍 ...
