Beech Forest

Nestled in the heart of the Otway Ranges, the tiny timber town of Beech Forest was first settled by Europeans in 1883.  It’s rumoured that the first hotel was built  using the timber of just one mountain ash tree.

Later it was made famous by a shuffling marathon runner by the name of Cliff Young.

There’s a raft of adventures to be had from the top of the mountains – visit Triplet Falls or Little Aire Falls…just two of the stunning natural gems.

For those in the need for adrenalin in the heart of the forest – you’ll find everything you need at the Otway Fly Treetop Adventures or travel down Turton’s Track to digest some of the most beautiful rainforest views from the comfort of your vehicle as you travel on to the Great Ocean Road, and enjoy the spoils of the Otway Harvest Trail.
