The town itself was quite busy, reminded me a little of a small Gold Coast without the hustle and bustle. A confusing description I know but the best I can come up with. The ocean and lakes were stunning but not a lot to explore as far as bush walks etc go.
The van park we stayed at had a lovely bush area at the back with a boat ramp and a walking track around the edge of the lake.
On Wednesday we had a day of scenic touring today, drove down to Seal Rocks and the Myall Lakes National Park. As per usual we had trouble reading maps and signs so had a extra drive which took us to a track down on to the beach. Retraced our tracks and went the right way to the Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse Carpark.
Had a steep uphill climb to the lighthouse but well worth the effort as the views were stunning.
From there we drove to Nernie Headland Picnic and Camping area.
Had lunch here and I walked up to the old cemetery
and headland lookout while Fred chattered to the rangers that had stopped for lunch.
Retraced our way towards Forster stopping to look at Smiths Lake Village and the Ruins Campground in Booti Booti National Park.
Got home just in time to get the washing in before a storm hit.
Saturday we drove out to Cape Hawke and walked up to the lookout,
it was only a short walk up to the lookout and then you climbed up to a viewing platform that gave a fantastic view back to Forster and out across the lakes towards the Myall Lakes area.
