Located in the Great Otway National Park and just a short drive to the Great Ocean Road, Forrest River Valley offers country-style accommodation in a luxury studio room with contemporary furnishings and full ...More length windows to enjoy the spectacular valley views across our rural property. Enjoy a full cooked breakfast on your private balcony with only the local bird life for company. Or book our newly furnished Blue Wren Studio- a self-catering studio especially outfitted for a couple with a king bed(or two singles) with spectacular views across our rural valley to the Otway National Park beyond. Enjoy breakfast on the large deck with the many birds that frequent our native garden; spot a mob of kangaroos in the valley below; maybe you will be lucky and see a magnificent wedged-tailed eagle in the sky above.
