A little before and after! Fresh paint makes a big difference, plus some new bedside lights, an amazing canvas and a vintage wardrobe. This is the Otways suite which can either be a King Bed or twin singles in the main bedroom. #ForrestGuesthouse

Another cute little bird because they make me smile. Inquisitive and exquisite. #fairywren #birdwatching #westbarwonreservoir #forrestguesthouse ...

Out with the old, in with the new! The wood heater in the restaurant was a bit sad and served its time. This new one should be much more efficient and provide a beautiful ambience in the restaurant! A bit of ceiling paint and it’ll be good to go! #DarTèta #mediterreanfood #palestinianfood #forrest ...

Silvereye in flight! Total fluke and a lovely surprise when looking through the photos. These birds usually arrive in a flock of around 20, and spend about 30 mins in one spot at a time. Very cheerful chatter, I usually see them in the hazelnut trees, but a few days ago it was the silver birches they were flitting around. #silvereye #birdwatching

Tonight’s little bird is an Eastern Yellow Robin. I saw a pair of them yesterday. They are so interesting how they have such an intense pop of colour but they turn their back and are completely camouflaged. I loved that this one was right near some wattle 😍 #birdwatching #easternyellowrobin

If you love tiny birds, we recommend you take a wander about the West Barwon Reservoir/Len Sprague Reserve and Fern Gully Walk. #birdwatching 🐦

Today we spotted Superb Fairy wrens (male and female), Eastern Yellow Robins and a Scarlet Robin all within metres of each other, as well as a Bassian Thrush.

The sunlight this afternoon was so welcome after so many rainy days in the last few weeks! With the #wattle coming into bloom, colour is returning to the bush.

We’re closed for August and getting some maintenance done. See you again in September! #forrestguesthouse ...

Beautiful morning at the West Barwon Reservoir this morning! The reflections were stunning! ...

Congratulations to Leon Gear who provided the first evidence early this morning of water beginning to spill very close to their predicted time! I wasn’t initially convinced by the photo as I was afraid it was a false alarm (wanted to make sure it was going to evolve into a full spill) but it is surely flowing now so happy to accept was the beginning! 😍 #forrestguesthouse #forrestdamwatch2021 #westbarwonreservoirwatch ...

Competition! Win a limited edition Forrest Guesthouse reverse umbrella! 😍 ☔️ This is a quality umbrella, perfect for this crappy weather.

- Follow the Forrest Guesthouse Facebook or Insta page
- Comment on the post below and specify date and time you think the spillway will finally flow.
- The earliest time predicted on Facebook or Insta that has evidence of it flowing at that time (photo/video with a date/time stamp) will win!
- Only locals within 5km of the spillway can legally go and check the level during their daily exercise. Please don’t breach restrictions.
- You can enter a prediction if you don’t live within 5km but you’ll be reliant on someone else posting an update with evidence that supports your prediction.
- Winner will receive a limited edition Forrest Guesthouse reverse umbrella! Only one up for grabs!
