The brewery was for a long time a decrepit service station that ceased operations in the mid-1980s and lay in shambles, a vermin-infested heap. There was nothing much of interest to attract people to Forrest then unless they were into mountain biking, and for most people it was a town that you would miss if you blinked. The transformation has been astounding yet Forrest retains its slow and sleepy pace (and it's true that's how the locals like it) despite the substantial visitor influx afforded the town from the brewery. People have travelled as far as Byron Bay to visit the place!
The timing of this walk might be a tad awry, me thinks.
111mm of rain has fallen in the last 24 hours at Mount Sabine
and still another 100 or so scheduled today and tomorrow...
