This is Australia: Forster Tuncurry NSW

If you want effortless days where you can drag out the last of summer in a holiday haze of beach walks, swims, slow coffees and lingering lunches, consider the twin towns of Forster Tuncurry.

Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and Lake Wallis, there are water views galore at every turn. A pedestrian friendly bridge joins the towns.

We were in Tuncurry for ANZAC Day, our most sacred day. Marches were cancelled last year, so honouring our diggers was particularly poignant this year.

Locals lined the streets, children waved flags and loud cheers went up for the towns’ brave men and women past and present.

Enjoying the one day of the year that is rightly theirs.
The power of the flag – found this on an ANZAC monument in Stockton Newcastle. Guaranteed to make you brush away a tear or two.

We’ve travelled the good road on this trip and now we’re heading home. Got a ton of good memories … and wine for my itsy bitsy cellar, so that’s a wrap from me. Until our next trip …

Where we stayed: Reflections Tuncurry. Great location near the beach, big sites, clean amenities, average camp kitchen. Reflections Forster also looked good.

Homeward bound
