Welcome to our Forster Accommodation review we completed after our recent tour of the Area staying at some of the wonderful beaches in the area. While the accommodation here wasn't quite up to the standard of some other parts of Australia there were some outstanding natural highlights. We will give you the good the bad and the ugly and honest about what we found with the Forster accommodation options.
At the bottom end of the scale we camped at by Booti Booti National park at Tiona only a 10 minute drive south of Forster when we were on our Australian Road trip and stopped by Forster to check out the Accommodation options.
The campground we stayed at was nice, and had good facilities but seems to has lost its way a little due to a lack of maintenance. Than rather than recommend this resort we can suggest some of the more highly rated resorts listed below.
Our last minute decision to stay here was an impulse as we were driving past, but we were disappointed the rest of the resort did not live up to the quality of the nice pool area pictured here. While the resort matched our desire for a nice shady campsite the resorts and accommodation options below off far better quality, and will offer a much wider range of enjoyable experiences for your Forster NSW holiday.

Forster NSW photos and review. Within a few hours drive of Newcastle and a half days drive (5 hours) from Sydney, Forster is a family holiday destination which offers some space for kids to move. We found this especially true in the area around Booti Booti National Park (See more on our best Australian beaches review )which seemed as if it could have easily been a secluded tropical island, on the summer days we stayed there.
In this episode the family is stalked by a giant goanna and we check out the Myall lakes district through day trips to Seal Rocks and see the lighthouse. Check out our campsite at Tiona in the Booti Booti National Park. This is part of our Sydney to Brisbane road trip.
We stayed at Tiona Beach right by the National Park. We had planned to stay at the National Park but found it was not really what our family was looking for when we arrived. To much sunshine was the major problem cased by the lack of trees and a lack of any real evidence of value for money in the sparse looking camp ground.
The camp we chose at Tiona by Booti Booti National Park was a spectacular location with the largest of the Great Lakes and a spectacular surf beach with miles and miles of unspoiled beach and hardly any signs of civilization. It was pure bliss. There are also a good few tourist Parks in Forster itself which are also highly rated but in less spectacular locations closer to shopping.
While the location we chose would have provided enough serenity for a destination style vacation we did enjoy the little day trips we bothered to make out of our rain forest like camp-site setting.
There are more than enough beaches to cater for every taste, but we opted for a visit to Tuncurry beach which was ideal for our three year old. This is safely located within the seclusion of the river mouth, with rock walls and is surf-less, pristine clear, and has a nice sandy beach. The tans of the retired locals on the beach here suggested this as a popular place for locals to hang out and enjoy the summer sun. Seagulls were also present to steal your lunch if you were not fast enough as well as pelicans. This was my first encounter with these huge birds following people around and it sure was something surreal to see 4 foot high birds walking around like they owned the place.
