Finding Forster (New South Wales)


Less than a half hour south of Old Bar (home to the spectacular Meridian Resort Beachside), you’ll come to the Great Lakes region, one of the most popular tourist destinations on the coast of New South Wales. Arguably the liveliest town in the region is Forster with more water sports and activities than you can poke a stick at.

Lakeside Festival
2nd of November
We can’t think of anything more refreshing than sitting by the lake with a plate of prawns, drinking a glass of white and listening to hours of live music. Admission is only $5, so head to Forster, set out a blanket, relax and listen to some of the local talent this November.

Fishing Charter

Take a Forster Fishing Charter out on the Great Lakes at Forster. On-Strike Charters provide you with everything you need for game, reef and sports fishing, including a charter fishing licence so all you’ll need is your hat and an esky.


Whale Watching

From Forster, you’re able to step aboard the Amaroo, the cruise that offers a 100% whale sighting guarantee during their southern migration. The best time to spot the majestic humpback is during mid-September to early December, so start planning your trip today!
Aboard the Amaroo, you can also get up close and personal with Bottle Nose Dolphins and Common Dolphins further offshore. They’ll often come right to the boat to ‘human-watch.’

Honeycomb Valley Farm

If you enjoy the company of animals but prefer to keep your feet dry, why not take the family on a short drive inland to visit Honeycomb Valley Farm. With everything from bee-keeping, bread-making and goats-milk soap courses to meeting and feeding the animals, you won’t regret visiting this charming farm attraction.

Lakeside Cafe

Don’t forget to drop into Ripples on the Lake Café while you’re visiting Forster. Here you can witness majestic sunsets on the Great Lakes, just metres from the water’s edge.
