Forster, NSW

The twin-town to Tuncurry, Forster is one of New South Wales’ most beloved holiday spots. The twins are separated by a waterway famous for its easy fishing. Kids will love the abundance of activities designed especially for them, particularly the show rides that hit town each summer.

Forster’s main beach is just a stone’s throw from many accommodation options, or head out of town for more secluded beaches which literally stretch for miles.

About 25 km south of Forster is Elizabeth Beach and Boomerang Beach.

Nearest Airport: TAREE
