The Wombat State Forest is located between Woodend and Daylesford, at the Great Dividing Range.

The forest is approximately 70,000 hectares (170,000 acres) in size. It is a magnet for the adventurous, with walking and cycling trails, four-wheel driving, trail bike riding, camping and wildlife spotting. You can explore to your hearts content.

A notable feature of Wombat State Forest is the extent of mineral springs which account for over 80% of Australia’s mineral springs. The mineral waters are rich in calcium, silica, magnesium, iron and sulphur. The volcanic activity of the region has supplemented the creation of mineral water – carbon dioxide mix that is seen in the form of bubbles emerging from the springs.
