About

The Riders Palace is a classic and small ‘Old Mill Cottage’ nestled in Victoria’s Mountain Biking Mecca of Forrest. The property is located at the start of the Forrest Mt Bike Trailhead.

The Riders Palace is an idyllic hideaway in the Otway’s boasting an enormous north facing deck, large open space lawn and garden surrounded by large eucalyptus tree – and home to numerous local koala’s.

The cottage has a very relaxed feel with polished timber floors, a small but light and airy kitchen / dining; the small separate lounge with open fire place opens on to the veranda overlooking peaceful gardens.

If you open the gate at the bottom of the garden and follow the path to the Barwon River you will discover a parkland and trail to the West Barwon Dam.

The self contained cottage can sleeps four people.

Mountain Biking – Forrest is surrounded by over 60 kilometres of sign posted single track specifically designed with real mountain bikers in mind. The trails offer experiences for all rider levels with trail grading from Easiest to Extremely Difficult.

The Riders Palace is a seven minute walk to the famous Forrest Brewing Company. This casual dining hall offers delicious meals from local produce, great beer and local wines.

The breathtaking Lake Elizabeth is a 10 minute drive.
