The West Otway Forest segment of the Otway Ranges, both as a geographical and administrative unit can broadly be defined as that area due south of Colac and running to the coast. The focus of this book is on the main saw-milling areas starting at Barongarook and proceeding south-eat to Olangalah and then west to Beech Forest and Crowes and then north to Kennedys Creek, Carlisle River, Irrewillipe and Pirron Yallock and east along the Prices Hwy to Colac.
The book focuses on the saw-milling history from its beginning up to the present day. All sawmills know to exist during this time have been listed.
