We scoured Victoria to find a property to match Liptrap Loft in unique character & charm. The property in Forrest was quite run-down, but we renovated the house and Otways Loft has been set up solely as holiday accommodation.

About the neighbourhood
Forrest is set in the hinterland behind the Great Ocean Road. It is a gorgeous small town of weatherboard shacks, surrounded by towering Mountain Ash rain-forest with lush ferny under-story. The dawn birdsong is deafening.

Quirky cafes and fine dining in town and close by i.e. Bespoke Harvest + Brae Restaurant.
