Beaches
Great Lakes is renowned for it’s beaches. With 145km of coastline is it any wonder that the Great Lakes is home to spectacular beaches. Some of our beaches are kilometres long where you could walk for hours and not see a soul. Others offer the best surfing and beach fishing on the North Coast. Some are protected and perfect for families while others are great for adventures. Others still, are so remote you can only get there by boat and have it all to yourself.
tuncurry beach or nine mile beach can be accessed at various points Its southern end can be reached from Beach Street Tuncurry. Although it's well known for its good surfing, you'll also find at its Southern end, Tuncurry Rockpool, an enclosed swimming area nestled into the Breakwall. With a kiosk, children’s play area and bbq facilities this is an extremely popular spot for families. Along Nine Mile there is a pet friendly section where dogs are allowed.

Forster Beach
Next to parklands (Bicentennial Walk) Pebbly Beach is an interesting beach to visit. As the name suggests the beach is covered in pebbles and the sound of the ocean crashing on them is fascinating. The rockpools are interesting to explore but as for swimming, the Tanks, just a short distance from this beach is a popular place to swim. The Tanks is a small inlet for swimming and has easy access and plenty of seating for watchful parents.

Seal Rocks is a small village with a big lighthouse! The beaches are pristine and on a clear day the water looks like a tropical paradise. The lighthouse is situated in National Park and the walk up to it reveals a spectacular cavern with the ocean water thundering through it. The beach pictured here is Treachery Beach viewed from top of the lighthouse. Map

Burgess Beach is my favourite beach in Forster. It's not a huge beach but it is surrounded by rocks and if you climb over them at the Southern side you will come across an isolated stretch of beach surrounded by hills. This beach is not patrolled and very isolated so take care if swimming. The locals swim in between the rocks, called the 'washing machine', it looks dangerous but as long as you don't go out too far and use common sense it is actually a lovely place to swim. The scenery at this beautiful beach is breathtaking.

Blueys Beach is in Pacific Palms on the Mid North Coast NSW and close to both Boomerang and Elizabeth Beaches. Although not a long beach (900 metres) it is a magical place to visit with views of hilly scenic slopes. Blueys Beach is also a popular surfing spot with it's aqua water. The beach was named after an unfortunate cow called Bluey ventured too far to the cliff and fell to its demise on the beach.

Waterfalls
From Wingham follow the Tourist Drive 8 signs to the legendary Ellenborough Falls at Elands. At 200 metres, Ellenborough Falls is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the Manning Valley’s biggest natural attractions. If you’re coming to the area, visiting this natural beauty is a must-do! Admire the natural beauty from the viewing platform at the top, or for the more adventurous, take the 641 timber steps to the bottom of the valley where you’ll get so close you’ll feel the spray and hear the roar of the falls. Allow 10 minutes or one hour. If you’ve worked up a hunger after exploring the area, visit the kiosk that is open Friday, Saturday & Sunday between 10am and 4pm and every day during school holidays. Selling fresh made and baked at the Kiosk: savoury pies, sausage rolls, vegetarian pasties as well as yummy cakes, hand pressed coffee, teas, cold drinks and lots of delicious specials
