Beech Forest is a town in Victoria, Australia. The area of Beech Forest is largely used for potato farming.
The town was named after the many myrtle beech trees of the area. Beech Forest Post Office opened on 10 May 1890 and closed in 1994.
The town had a railway station on the Crowes railway line from 1902 until 1962. Much of the route of the old railway has been converted to the Old Beechy Rail Trail, via which cyclists and walkers can travel 45 kilometres (28 mi) between Beech Forest and Colac.
Cliff Young, winner of the 1983 Westfield Sydney to Melbourne Ultra Marathon at the age of 61, lived in Beech Forest.
