For those of you who love to take short breaks just to get away from the pressures of urban life, Forster is truly a great spot to rejuvenate yourself completely; you can unwind yourself on the beaches, get close to nature by talking walks, find the treasures from weekend markets, pamper yourself by enjoying Wallis Lakes oysters, and much more.
Forster is about 320 kilometres north of Sydney, or four hours drive. Located in the Great Lakes area, Forster is connected to Tuncurry, attracting people to come over the town for short holiday breaks.
Forster Main Beach on North Street is a beautiful beach. Adjacent to the beach, you'll find Forster Break Wall and the Forster Ocean Baths. Whenever I get a chance to Forster for short breaks, I always love taking a leisurely stroll along this waterfront; relaxing and peaceful.
Simply continuing your exploration, you can find Pebbly Beach after taking a short walk along the coast from Forster Main Beach. The Pebbly Beach Bicentennial Walk commences off North Street, near the ocean baths of Forster Beach. As its name suggests, this is a spot where you can see stretches of round ocean polished rocks. It is not something you can find easily from other beaches.
A walk along the coast from Forster Main Beach, you can reach the lovely Pebbly Beach.
If you love oysters, then don't miss Wallis Lakes oysters. Renowned for their flavour, Wallis Lake oysters certainly whet your appetite.
Adding to all these attractions, weekend markets are a great way for you to bring home beautiful craft and fresh local produce. There is no shortage of choices; check out Forster Town Markets, Forster Farmers Markets, Tea Gardens Village Markets, Tuncurry Markets, and Blackhead Bazaar.
Forster is a wonderful town for a short stay; its scenic spots are what I love the most.
