In the second bedroom, there are two twin-size beds, while the remaining third and fourth bedrooms each boast a queen-size bed. The spacious full bathroom includes a toilet, a sink, and a shower, while the half bathroom has a toilet and a sink. Fresh linens and fluffy towels are provided.

Outside, guests will step out onto the lovely wraparound deck, which has first-hand views over the lush garden and bush that this property calls its backyard.

The curious accommodations were designed to be unique and eye-catching, made from recycled materials, with one accommodation being built on a framework of local tree poles. The interior is a mixture of components from a train carriage, locally felled timber, materials from a nearby church, and other salvaged bits and pieces. Fresh linens and fluffy towels are provided, while one of the accommodations has a full laundry with a washer/dryer. Both accommodations are equipped with Wi-Fi. Guests are welcomed with some basic kitchen necessities to get them started.

This incredible and unique property is located in the small, rural town of Forrest in Victoria, Queensland, just a short drive from Otway Forest Park. Forrest is a gorgeous, small town of weatherboard shacks, surrounded by towering Mountain Ash rain forest with verdant ferny understory. It is lush and abundant, a popular spot for mountain biking, climbing, and hiking. There are several pubs, restaurants, and cafes in the area, especially as the town is often a stop along the famed Great Ocean Road. Just minutes away is the West Barwon Reservoir, where guests can swim, fish, kayak, or paddleboard.

The buzzing heart of Melbourne, Victoria, is just a two-hour drive from the property.
