Cape Hawke Lookout

Reviewed By kpiddy - Brisbane, Australia

It is definitely worth the short drive out from the town centre of Forster to visit the Cape Hawke Lookout. The trail starts immediately after the carpark, passing by an information board the track to the summit begins, just 420 metres long. It is a short sharp climb mostly in the shade, there are mossy wooden benches along the way for those who might need a rest. The path is rough with many steps but thoroughly worth the climb. At the summit there is a eight metre high elevated tower, from the top platform of the tower there are magnificent views of the coastline and surrounding countryside. Allow 30 minutes return.

Wallis Lake

Beautiful Wallis lake stunning crystal clear blue water great for fishing,swimming,snorkeling and all water sports. Always plenty of dolphins to see.

Reviewed By FlamboShambo - Westport, Ireland

Beautiful lake with may different sections. Waters are very clear with plenty of bird life on and beside the lake. Surprising shallow in many sections. All types of water activities available to amuse young and old. Many restaurants and cafes once you get off the boat.
A day on the lake is a lovely way to chill out and relax.

Seven Mile Beach

Reviewed By Copthat1 - Sydney, Australia

Yes, a magnificent beach, like many others in this area, but also a clean and rather long one as well.. Great for long walks, to take in what nature has to offer. Great for a swim as well but not manned by life savers. Nonetheless, a very picturesque location in this fantastic national park.

Burgess Beach, Forster

Reviewed By Bruce E - Forster, Australia

Burgess Beach varies from sandy Beaches between rocky platforms at good times, to all jagged rocky Beaches between rocky platforms when the sand has been washed away by big seas. This is normal seasonal activity. This 'beach' is NOT patrolled by any lifeguards, so caution is required when using this beach, and the surrounding rocks! Also no toilets are provided, only shower and foot washing.

Bennetts Head Lookout

Reviewed By kpiddy - Brisbane, Australia

Bennetts Head Lookout is another gem on the coastline at Forster, the easiest way to arrive here is by car or you can walk here as part of the Bicentennial Walk which stretches between Forster Beach to the Lookout. There is a small platform which extends out over a rocky gorge for great views of the coastline and ocean. From the lookout we walked along a short narrow path south to One Mile Beach, which if you have time I highly recommend, this is a very pretty beach.

Forster Main Beach

Reviewed By Aussielins - Taree, Australia

This beach has a patrolled swimming area and also a large enclosed open-air pool, making it an attractive destination. Barbecue and Seating facilities are located at one end. Although extensive parking is available, sometimes it is difficult to find a space during holiday periods.

Forster Stockland Shopping Centre

Reviewed By benandmuffin247 - Sydney, Australia

Just a normal stockland mall complex coles,woolies,target etc. It has a few places to eat nothing amazing but it will satisfy your hunger. The butcher is very good and has a large selection of goods to choose from. The car park is free and normally easy to get a spot except in the tourist season. You will be able to pick up what you need for the house or holiday.

Forster Beach

Reviewed By FoolishSaint - Sydney, Australia

It's a nice small beach, with a ocean pool at one end.
It's also a small town, and not too crowded. Very easy to access.
What is amazing is that dolphins swim up close to the shore line, almost every day? (at least the few days I was there).
