Published on Mar 21, 2022
If you're planning a trip to Forster Tuncurry, you can't miss the Great Lakes. The Great Lakes on the Barrington Coast represent the largest coastal lake system in New South Wales and consist of three beautiful lakes: Myall, Smith and Wallis. You can enjoy gorgeous white sand beaches on one side and lakes and rainforests on the other, all in one location. Whether you're visiting for the day, a weekend or longer, Forster Holiday Rentals has you covered with Forster Tuncurry accommodation and a diverse list of things to do in the Barrington Coast region. Let's dive in!

Cape Hawke Lookout

Located just five minutes from the heart of Forster, Cape Hawke Lookout offers stunning views of the coast and rainforest. This lookout is at the northern end of Booti Booti National Park. To get there, you can hike 500m through the rainforest and enjoy nature along the way.

Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse

A historic landmark built in 1875, Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse sits east of Seal Rocks Village at the northern end of Myall Lakes National Park. Not only can you experience the lighthouse architecture and memorials, but it offers a breathtaking view of the Forster coast. You might even see some whales or dolphins in the water!

Burraduc Farm

If you want to experience a real taste of the Barrington Coast, you have to visit Burraduc Farm, a local ethical buffalo dairy. They make tasty buffalo cheeses fresh from the farm. Supporting Burraduc Farm is supporting biodiversity and nature in NSW - it's a win-win for everyone!

Palms Artisan Bakery

Palms Artisan Bakery is another local favourite in Pacific Palms, Australia. They hand-make sourdough bread with simple, sustainable ingredients. It's delicious and nutritious, so goes their tagline, "Man can live on bread alone!"

Cellito Beach

You could make an entire day's itinerary at Cellito Beach alone. Not only is it one of the best surf beaches in the Barrington Coast region, but it also offers sweeping views of Seal Rocks, and the boardwalk borders the littoral rainforest. At the southern end of the Cellito Beach is Sandbar, which has 4WD access for even more adventures.

Boomerang Beach

Boomerang Beach is another fantastic surf beach in the Pacific Palms area. It's shaped like a boomerang and surrounded by steep cliffs, creating great waves and amazing views! Pro tip: come here to watch the most vivid sunrises!
