Forster - Tuncurry

Tuesday 6 September 2016

Mainly sunny and fine again today.

Today we decided to drive back to Forster-Tuncurry to enable us to get some scripts filled and to do a bit of super-marketing. While we drove through the area the other day on our way to Seal Rocks we did not get the opportunity to look around. Forster (pronounced Foster) and Tuncurry are twin towns on either side of the entrance to Wallis Lake that makes up one of the Great Lakes in the area that include Smiths Lake and Myall Lake. Tuncurry town centre is generally run down unlike the more upmarket Forster town centre. After visiting the pharmacy and the newsagent we found a cafe for a light lunch, before moving on to Woollies for a few groceries.

On the way back to Seal Rocks we drove into the Cape Hawke Lookout to see if the whales were about, and also drove into Boomerang Beach to check it out. There were whales about 5 miles out in the distance but far to far away for a decent photo.

Viewing tower at Cape Hawke - it would have been cheaper to cut down a few trees.
