Forrest’s events calendar is always packed with exciting and diverse events year round. There are loads of things to do in Forrest when it comes to events, with mountain biking taking centre stage at our world class mountain bike trails for the Forrest 300 in April, and the Forrest Festival in December.

However, Forrest is about far more than mountain biking events, with some of the annual event highlights including Run Forrest and Forrest Soup Fest, which showcases some of the great food and local produce from Forrest and the surrounding region.

Aside from the popular annual events, mountain biking and nature-based activities, there is always plenty of things to do in Forrest on a weekly basis. Forrest’s community groups frequently host various events, including dance and exercise workshops, lunches and social events. You can contact the Forrest Community Group for more information on any event.
