What Sets Forest Rise Apart?

Our property was established as a luxury eco retreat in the late 1990’s, with the development of 10 uniquely Western Australian styled rammed earth chalets.

These chalets were built with couples and romance in mind. Separately positioned within native forest, they are well appointed (with all the comforts you would expect in modern hotel or resort). A unique glass roof over the spa allows for sky gazing. We highly recommend relaxing in a bubble bath while listening to your favourite music!

Other benefits of our 240 acre property include:

  • Our focus is for customers to rest, relax and reconnect
  • Self-check in and out
  • A huge range of modern amenities in both our chalets and lodge
  • Available for weddings, events and private functions
  • Personal inhouse chef, room massage treatments and private yoga instructor are available upon request
  • We support a number of charities including the Cancer Council, Wirrpanda Foundation, Royal Flying Doctor Service and more
