Things to See & Do

Use our north coast holiday park as a bouncing board for activities in Forster and other surrounding areas. Discovery Parks – Forster has plenty of things to do onsite as well as events nearby that are sure to provide you with hours of fun and entertainment.
With so many activities taking place throughout the year, make sure you check out the attractions below to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the action!Things to See & Do 1

This beautiful coastline blends great places to eat and shop, with perfect beaches, dazzling lakes and national parks.  With fishing, golf courses, local markets and wineries at your door step you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself.

National Motorcycle Museum (11.5km)

Escape in the glorious display of 800 motorcycles when you visit Australia’s largest museum for vintage, veteran and classic motorcycles. Here you will see Corgis, but they are not ruled by the Queen, you will also see Levis and Cottons, but it won’t be part of a fashion show, and you will see Warriors and Triumphs, but not on a battlefield.

Big Buzz Fun Park (7.1km)

You will not have enough time in one day to get through all of the activities at this fun park, and that is the hard truth. Toboggan run, laser tag, trampolines, speed cars, quad bikes, putt putt golf and a jumbo slide are just some of the things to choose from, so select wisely and make the most of your time.

Myall Lakes National Park (29.1km)

Take your pick of three lakes that are part of this beautiful national park and indulge in some fishing, boating, whale watching, surfing or swimming. If it’s too cold for water-sports, turn your attention to one of the largest trees in the state, Grandis, measuring in at 76m. The park also runs guided tours, which will enhance your survival skills and educate you on the history of the area.

Forster – Water Activities (12.3km)

Bring your paddleboard or kayak to Forster and take advantage of the calm waters of Wallis Lake. Surf the waves at One Mile Beach, water-ski on Wallamba River, or dive the shipwrecks and amazing coastal reefs off Seal Rocks. Walk the break wall for dolphins galore and spot a whale as they pass by. Local operators are happy to supply you with all the gear you need, lessons, tours, and cruises to make sure your holiday is fun filled and carefree.
