"A very magical & spiritual country town"

Blackwood is a very spiritual magical place in the Wombat State Forest with the most amazing beautiful birdlife and Australian Native animals.
It is excellent for horse riding, joggers, motorbike riders, bush walkers and nature lovers.
There is an amazing cave that goes into the mountains that children love to look at and explore like the Yogi bear movie. WOW!!
You can also see all the stars at night for astronomy lovers too.
Even though it gets cold you can really enjoy the log fires at night under the stars!!!

"Charisma Nikita-Jones"

Blackwood is a magical spot situated in forest dwelings, a very peaceful town. It is amazing at how at peace you will feel when you come here. One con i do have is how cold it is, its about 7 degrees colder then lara where i am from. So really rug up when you visit. I expected the town to be a little more friendly, the Pub owners are awesome but the residents tend to turn their nose up, my family and i are very friendly peaceful people but for some reason they dont smile, even when smiled at, wierd.
