Forest Rise Eco Retreat Review

King size beds, fluffy robes, dreamy candle-lit spas with overhead windows looking up to the forest canopy and oh-so-private verandahs make this eco-certified retreat a true sanctuary. Ideal for semi-retired professionals or those seeking solace from the world at large, you can even choose to go au naturel and shower in view only of the possums! Environmental consultants have prepared interpretive handouts to guide you along the self guided trails and introduce you to the fauna and flora in this private 240 acre reserve, which you can explore on foot or on mountain bike. Guest enjoy luxury self-catering in the rammed earth and solid timber chalets, which also feature wood fires and barbecues. Unusually, it's self check-in (details are provided on payment).
