Lee Tomlin opened the scoring for the visitors in the 37th minute and added another in the 47th minute.
Joe Lolley, who provided the assist for Tomlin’s second goal, added the third with Tomlin teeing up for his goal.
Massimo Luongo and Matt Smith scored on either side of a Matty Cash goal, but a late goal from Ben Brereton killed off all hopes of a comeback for QPR.
QPR enjoyed 53% of possession, but it was Forest who really tested their defence with nine attempts on goal.
