CYC Forest Edge

Camps and accommodation / Last updated 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Just 90 minutes east of Melbourne, you can escape to your own river valley, where rich farming lands, quiet rivers, lush fern gullies, tall old growth forests, and breathtaking mountains come together to frame this uniquely beautiful 100-acre property.

Step into adventure on our breathtaking high ropes course, feel the rush on our 310-metre flying fox, reach for the top on our high indoor climbing wall or blissfully float down the gorgeous LaTrobe River on your own personal river raft!

With an overall capacity to sleep 200+ guests, Forest Edge’s two separate accommodation areas allow for a variety of group sizes.  Latrobe River Lodge can accommodate 130+ guests in modern, en-suited, and centrally heated guestrooms.  This area also offers a fully-catered dining room, a 200-seat function room, and multiple breakout rooms. McKerlie Creek Cabins accommodate a maximum of 70 guests in a modern, rustic style, with contemporary, centralised bathrooms, private function and dining rooms, and a fully-equipped commercial kitchen for self-catering.

Resident managers and experienced full-time staff ensure security and peace of mind.  Other facilities include an indoor basketball/volleyball stadium,  outdoor chapel,  huge sports oval, campfire and tenting area, extensive verandas, and, of course, a wide variety of on-site activities such as trout fishing, eco programs, mini golf, high ropes course, bouldering walls, archery, climbing wall, flying fox  and more.

Escape to the Forest’s Edge, where nature, adventure, comfortable accommodation, quality facilities, and dedicated staff await you!  We’d love to work together with you as you plan your next conference, school camp, retreat, corporate event, team building day, or weekend away!
