Experience the beauty and seclusion of the Wombat Forest, guided by modern GPS equipment. No clubs or tours, just you and the company of your choice, or solo if you wish.
Choose from a selection of carefully mapped bushwalks in the Wombat Forest according to your tastes and abilities. Be immersed in lush fern gullies or tall forest, or take in high country mountain views or dramatic river gorges.
Our hand held GPS unit will show you the way. Long and short, easy or challenging walks are catered for.
Or join in with family and friends for a GPS Treasure Hunt game at Lake Daylesford.
Bookings are essential.
If you’re up for a big experience ask about new walk ‘Twin Peaks’. It’s a challenging walk with great diversity and grand vistas. Updated GPS units beep as you approach a turnoff etc, so the navigation is now even easier. Consider an earlier start on hot days. Sorry, no forest walks on Total Fire Ban days.
If you love the outdoors and fun with your friends and family, the GPS Treasure Hunt at beautiful Lake Daylesford would be ideal, especially over the holidays. With six or more players you can get additional GPS units for a team challenge. No extra charge. Not sure? See these reviews on Tripadvisor.
WOMBAT FOREST REPORT
Current conditions and highlights in the Wombat Forest.
February. Mild conditions with roughly fortnightly big drops of rain continue to characterise the season. While so much of the nation is dry and/or experiencing disaster, the Wombat Forest in the vicinity of Daylesford is a veritable oasis.
The Bullarto Walks (long and short editions) and the Birdsong and Clear Air Walks are especially green and vibrant.
Kara and Max debuted The Sunday Special on 2nd Feb, Taking the vintage rail car to Bullarto Station and embarking on the customised Bullarto Walk. At the Secret Lake, they picnicked on a specially prepared feast made by Daylesfords’ Spade to Blade catering, and returned via forest trail and rail car. They described it as a fantastic experience. This month will be a great time to enjoy this unique combination.
Consultation and using the GPS for a forest walk.
During consultation at our favourite Daylesford cafe or your accommodation, we will provide you with an easy to use hand held GPS unit, which will guide you on your selected walk. Unlike paper maps, the GPS unit will accurately show you where you are and where to head. You can walk independently and with confidence in even remote parts of the forest.
Dogs walked on leads are permitted in the Wombat Forest.
