Explore Forresters Beach

Forresters Beach accommodation is in a popular holiday location on the Central Coast, NSW. Affectionately known to locals as “Forries”, the seaside town is renowned for its pristine sandy beach, soaring rocky cliffs and reef breaks for surfers. Forresters Beach is situated between Wamberal and Bateau Bay, around a 90 minutes drive north of Sydney and an hours’ drive south of Newcastle.

In 1861 Forresters Beach was named after Robert Forrester who purchased 50 acres of land there. With limited access to the beach front, Forresters Beach has maintained its quiet and peaceful setting. The beach is never crowded due to moderate tourism and fewer visitors than Terrigal. When not surfing, fishing or playing in the rock pools, visitors can visit local putt-putt and golf ranges, aquatic centre, shopping centres, pubs, clubs and restaurants.

Stunning coastal cliffs and expansive ocean views can be seen along platforms at Wyrrabalong National Park which is abundant with wildlife. The name Wyrrabalong is Aboriginal for ‘headland looking over the sea’. Bushwalking is a popular activity in the Wyrrabalong National Park which contains tracks leading to Spoon Bay beach. Crackneck Lookout is 85m above sea level with picnic and barbeque areas.
