"If, to be brutally honest, Forest Creek Lodge got 0 out of 10 for the access road this was more than made up for by earning nearly 10 out of 10 for practically everything else! And perhaps even that is being a bit harsh because, notwithstanding the clear warning some where in the literature that F..."more
"We had a lovely time at Forest Creek lodge. Forest cottage was very secluded which we enjoyed and the hikes were great.
Points for improvement:
We had booked a massage and a bush bath but no-one told us where to go or what to do. Also people should be stopped from taking saloon cars fr..."

"Stay very relaxing. Beautiful rooms. Food very good. Staff very friendly. We enjoyed our walk to the waterfall."
"Forest Creek is a great place to stay, being 4k off the main road, it is remote, a true place to be completely isolated, with unusual features, such as an outdoor stone shower and a secluded, romantic "bath in the bush" with champagne! The food was high quality; however, I would have prefered some..."more

Very pleasant hike..."
