  • Nice little climb for a beautiful view ⛰
  • Good view to be had but not quite 360 as the trees have grown too tall for the platform. Note some level of fitness required for an uphill climb of about 500m and then a 48-step high structure... worth the trip if you want some exercise.
  • One of the best walks i've been on worth a look-out! :D
  • A good walk and great view
  • Worth the 420m hike to the summit but don't forget the Aeroguard because the bugs attack in big numbers. We used branches to swat them away & we wern't prepared for the semi tough climb but still a good place to visit, the view is awesome. The bush turkeys also lurk in the bushes.

Where to stay in Forster

Look close to the beach for large luxury hotels and holiday apartments, with amenity-rich grounds boasting pools, restaurants, and bars. Just back from the sand and the sea, you'll discover a number of small, more budget-friendly hotels and guesthouses, which offer few extras but still enjoy a great position within the town. Smaller, sister town Tuncurry offers a selection of campgrounds and caravan sites, many located close to the lakes and providing a whole range of water sports facilities.
