Forrest is the perfect holiday destination for adventure. Ride over 60km of singletrack, hike to a waterfall, go on a @treesadventure, seek a platypus on a kayak tour, and just 30 mins to the beach. It doesn’t get much better! #ForrestGuesthouse #RideForrest

This may be my favourite pic of my bike yet... Now just imagine your bike in this shot... doesn’t your bike deserve a visit to Forrest? 🤣 photo by @safari.global

Here at #ForrestGuesthouse we love all things #mtb and especially anything that encourages women to get into biking. When I got asked to help out with a tourism photo shoot, I had two thoughts. Bring a female friend or two to the shoot, and also use the opportunity to highlight a fantastic community group who encourage women (myself included) to get into biking. I snuck in my #lystychicks drink bottle 😉 and roped in a mate @swcros. While I don’t usually post photos of myself, I’ll make an exception for this campaign. 😃 I’ll share some more of these in the coming days.

This shoot is part of a larger video campaign which will be released in March. Big thanks to GORRT for choosing to highlight Forrest, Forrest Guesthouse and all the adventures you can have while exploring the area! Can’t wait to see the videos 😍 @victoriatogether

Good luck to all the competitors in Forrest this weekend for the #OtwayOdyssey2021 and the #OOGG. I wish I was riding with you all but it’s not meant to be this year! #ForrestGuesthouse

Erskine River Walk is partly rock clambering and partly well formed track which makes it an interesting little adventure. With multiple river crossing plus Erskine and Straw Falls near the start, it should only be attempted when the river level is low. Hiking boots and poles recommended for stability. #ForrestGuesthouse #waterfalls

Stevensons Falls in fine form today. This is the closest set of falls to Forrest, just near Barramunga. An easy track in; fairly level and only 500m to the fall with a viewing platform with stairs at the end. Everyone needs to visit this at least once, but regularly is even better! 😆

Gravel..... who has signed up for the Great Otway Gravel Grind? I rode most of the 49km loop this morning, roads are in great condition with the exception of Kaanglang Rd below the Lake Elizabeth carpark - some rough corrugation on a couple of corners! #gogg2021 #ForrestGuesthouse

We’ve just been informed of a wedding being postponed so 3 of our suites are now available for the first weekend in Feb! Why don’t you take a break? Hiking, biking, platypus tours, high ropes courses... there’s so much to do around here 🙂 #ForrestGuesthouse

Guests have had to postpone their stay due to illness... if you’ve been thinking of visiting but couldn’t find availability, now is your chance! 2 night min applies. #forrestguesthouse #otwayharvesttrail ...

Sheoak Falls is just outside of Lorne and starts with a climb up to views of the coast before heading inland to the falls. You can just head to the falls or combine it with other destinations like Swallow Cave or other waterfalls in the area for a decent hike. While not a long walk at approx 1.5km return, it does have some steep sections.

Henderson Falls in flood on Tuesday - just a bit different to normal! A 4.3km return walk, it was quite muddy after all the recent rain so hiking poles were very useful! Plenty of walkers struggling in the wrong footwear although I did have to laugh at the guy piggybacking his gf who was wearing white volleys 😂 he definitely got a workout!! #waterfalls

Escape the crowds. Discover the hidden gems of the Otways. #waterfalls #ferns #hiking #otwaysmist #adventure ...

Not my current home landscape but my original one. Not a hill, a bend, a treefern or a king parrot to speak of... just a bit different! #tongala ...

It’s not Forrest but it’s still bikes! 😍 ...
