    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. Read More
