The Ultimate  Australian Forest Experience

Australian animals at Goldsmith's in the forest
Relax in this remarkable natural Australian bush setting while we prepare your individually designed breakfast. Stroll out with us to savour the scents of the forest plants around the Bed and Breakfast or just laze in the forest spa by moonlight. Visit the sugar gliders on this significant covenanted property - home to four Ecological vegetation types, 115 species of birds (bird watchers delight). Bring back from your guided walk the flavours for our chef  to create a magic dining experience in harmony with our environment.
Our guided interpretation walk features many things learned over the last 30 years living on the Lakes Entrance property. Originally the early settlers struggled to clear the forest and sow the area down in familiar English grasses for sheep or cattle pasture, only to be overwhelmed by the native scrub. We have learned of the  role of the Black wattle and mistletoe, both often unpopular plants, in repairing and developing the diversity in our forest as it recovers from fire or clearing. We have learned to identify many of the birds by their calls, not to be tricked by the lyrebird - when all the calls come from the same place at the same volume we know he is performing. We see the signs around the property, the scats, scratches, burrows and nests of the different animals and birds that make their home here in this part of East GIppsland. Every walk is different as there is always something new happening in the forest, each guest notices different features. We have also learned of the Aboriginal uses of the plants and animals, food from animals and fruits, bark for water transport and fungi and leaves for medicine.
