The wild heart of Macedon Ranges
Deep in the Wombat State Forest, you won’t be able to stop ogling at this moss-covered wonderland, every sleek rock and fern frond dripping with fresh water.
The Wombat State Forest is located between Woodend and Daylesford and covers approximately 70,000 hectares of virgin bushland. Popular wildlife like grey kangaroos, wombats, wallabies, echidnas, koalas and 150 species of birds will invigorate you – that is, if you catch a sighting!
The Wombat State Forest is an outdoors lover’s paradise. Four-wheel-driving, bush-walking, picnicking, horse-riding and bird-watching are just some of the activities that can be indulged in here.
The Wombat State Forest has also gained a reputation for being one of the best places in Victoria to ride a mountain bike, with more than 100km of single track just waiting to be discovered.
