Off to relive childhood memories at Forster

We are lucky enough to have been asked if we would like to visit one of the Discovery Holiday Parks and give our feedback, of course we jumped at the chance …… a $250 voucher to spend at any park we like, who wouldn’t accept that offer!

With $250 to spend we thought that rather than taking the camper trailer, we’d make the most of the money and book a cabin and invite the in-laws to join us. So tomorrow morning we head off up to Forster for the weekend.


Spent many a day swimming in this pool

Forster is a coastal town on the mid north coast of NSW, about 3 1/2 hours north of Sydney. It’s a very popular destination for families in particular and summer holidays are when this place explodes with people.

Forster holds a lot of memories for me (Shelly) as it’s the place of all of our childhood family vacations. Every year we would take the last few weeks off school and head up to Forster for a 3 week holiday, returning home just in time for Christmas. We stayed in the same unit every year in a block one street from the beach called, Carinya Gardens, which is still there today.  We would meet the same people up there each year, we played on the beach, went shopping and spent plenty of time exploring the arts and craft centre that used to be next to the pool.  I remember the early morning walks along the beach and breakwall with dad to buy the paper, even remember one time we were forced back by police as there was a crazed gunman over near the other breakwall at Tuncurry, that was scary and big news at the time as nothing like that ever happened up there!

I remember buying fish and chips for dinner and eating it by the lake and the special


So many memories from many years of holiday times spent with the family.

The last time we both visited Forster as a couple was back in 2009, so it will be nice to see the place again, albeit only for a very short weekend stay.
