The Green Cathedral on the shores of Wallis Lake is a cathedral naturally formed by the Cabbage Palm canopy. It is a place of worship and a wonderful place to watch the sunset over the lake. This is one of the Great Lakes most beautiful attractions has been a popular place for weddings over the years. Click here for more info on Green Cathedral weddings.
The Myall Lakes National Park has one of the tallest trees in NSW called The Grandis, a magnificent 76 metre high flooded gum.
There are a number of National Parks in the Forster Tuncurry area including Myall Lakes National Park, Booti Booti National Park and Wallingat National Park, all offering great walks, scenic lookouts and a variety of ways to explore the region.
Cape Hawke Lookout Named by Captain James Cook, this viewing tower is situated at the summit of Cape Hawke. This magnificent lookout provides amazing panoramic views of the area, from Seal Rocks in the south to Crowdy Head in the north and west to the Great Dividing Range and Wallis Lake. A great place to appreciate the beauty of our beloved Great Lakes.
Forster Main Beach
Truly one of Forster-Tuncurry's most beautiful beaches. The beach is protected by Hayden's lookout and the local bullring (picture below) and therefore is the perfect, safe beach to spend time with the whole family. Forster Main beach has a kiosk which serves breakfast and lunch, along with ice-creams and drinks.
One Mile Beach
Another beautiful beach further south right next to Forster Golf Course. This beach has some of the best local surfing spots at middle and northern points of the beach. This beach also has a huge sand dune at the northern end which is always a hit with the kids. At the south end of One Mile beach there is a kiosk which serves fish & chips, drinks and ice-creams.
We have magnificent waterways with plenty of hire boat sheds, Whale and dolphin watching cruises and diving and snorkeling charter boats. "Wallis Lake" oysters grown by Graham Barclay are widely regarded as being one of the Worlds Premium Seafood & Delicacies. So why not grab some Wallis Lake Oysters, hire out a boast for the day, and enjoy our breathtaking waterways.
Wharf Street Forster
Wharf street Forster, commonly known to local's as "the main street", is the perfect place to explore small boutique shops and restaurants. There is a Stocklands shopping centre located along the Lakes way which has many large franchise/chain stores.
There is plenty to see and do around the Great Lakes. These are a select few of the great attractions out there waiting for you to share with friends and family....
