How we spend time in Forster
There was an article in the Traveller section of the SMH on March 27-28 extolling the virtues of the area for scenery and as an ideal holiday destination. Scurrilous detractors may label the charms of Forster-Toncurry as “God’s waiting room” due to the large number of retirees living here but domestic tourists continue to flock to the area.
The coast is blessed with fine sands and beaches of every kind, picturesque and safe swimming beaches, surfing beaches and beaches stretching far beyond what the eye can see. The beach in the photo above is of One Mile Beach.
The Forster town beach has a netted rock pool and ocean baths. Children friendly lagoons are protected by unusual rock formations and invite the traditional bucket and spade family holidays.
As you can see the other shot of a sea kayak off the coast above is a little different from our yellow friend.
