Holiday-makers see potential in former Forrest post office site


32 Station St, Forrest goes to auction on June 1.

UNLOCK the potential of Forrest’s former post office and telephone exchange for a fraction of Geelong’s median house price.

Smyth, Apollo Bay agent Noel Tanis is quoting $150,000-plus for the rundown house that would be an ideal site for a holiday getaway or permanent base.

Mr Tanis said there was potential to renovate the building that was once part of a thriving town centre or demolish and start again.

“There is good interest coming from Geelong and a little bit from Melbourne,” he said.

“It’s in a good spot, it’s got a nice outlook and a lot of potential.

“People are looking at it as a holiday retreat.”

He said 15 years ago you “couldn’t give a place away” in Forrest but the town had grown in popularity since reinventing itself as a mountain bike destination.

The vacant block next door, at 30 Station St, Forrest, will also be auctioned.

The 788sq m block at 32 Station St, Forrest will be auctioned on June 1 at 1.30pm with a neighbouring vacant allotment of 813sq m at 30 Station St to be offered separately at 1.45pm.

The vacant block is expected to fetch $120,000-plus.
