Wombat Forest Country Retreat is nestled in an idyllic country setting in Trentham East which is located in between the Macedon Ranges and Hepburn Springs surrounded by farm lands and bordering the Wombat State Forest. Open green pastures, towering forests and wonderful country lanes abound.
In the vicinity are Trentham Falls (spectacular after rain), Diggers Garden of St Erth (with established gardens, nursery and cafe), and the historic township of Blackwood (nestled in amongst the forest trees).
In terms of food, you might want to explore Trentham's ever-popular Red Beard Bakery (with 'real' sourdough and spontaneous tours of their original Scottish oven), the famous Du Fermier run by chef Annie Smithers (better make your booking early!), and the charming local pub The Pig and Whistle (just 15 minute walk up the road).
You can also easily drive to Daylesford, Kyneton and Woodend. Most towns around have a weekend market at least once a month. There is a tourist information centre in Woodend if you are stuck for ideas.

About Sibastian and David
We are a well-travelled couple living the country life in Trentham East. Since we took on this property in 2015, we've been lucky enough to share this beautiful part of Victoria with guests. We have also been slowly working toward our goal of self-sufficiency and establishing a market garden, and are more than happy to give you a tour of the gardens if you are interested. After the events of 2020, we look forward to once again welcoming guests to the Retreat, and sharing this idyllic and hidden corner of the world with more like-minded people. If you see us out and about working on the gardens - feel free to say g'day! We are always happy to have a chat if you want to know more about the gardens, surroundings and things to do around here.
