Dominated by water sports Forster is the centre of the Great Lakes area.
Dolphin cruises, fishing, sailboarding and scuba diving are among the activities that attract large numbers of holiday visitors to Forster.
The beaches around Foster all fabulous starting with Main Beach which is a protected beach, making it ideal for families. Nearby Pebbly Beach is also a good spot for families as is Burgess Beach. Other beaches not to miss include One Mile Beach and McBrides Beach, ideal to escape for a day. Seven Mile Beach stretches South from Cape Hawke down to Booti Hill and the Ruins, great for fishing and surfing.
Walk along the Bicentennial Trail, sample fresh local oysters farmed in Wallis Lake and climb the steep 223-m summit of Cape Hawke for spectacular views. Covering the narrow isthmus just south of Forster, Booti Booti National Park incorporates a marvellous stretch of coastline between Cape Hawke and Seagull Point.
There are few places in the State that offer such a superb choice of fishing – deep-sea, lake, rock, river or beach.
