Review: Discovery Parks Forster

If you read our last blog you will recall that we were recently invited to visit one of the Discovery Parks and give our feedback.  We decided that we would head up to Forster, a few hours north of Sydney.  This park is located right on the shores of Wallamba River and this makes for beautiful tranquil surroundings and a great location.

This is a great part of NSW, offering a range of activities.  For the adventurous, there is fishing, kayaking, water skiing and bush walking.  For the not as adventurous there are beautiful beaches, cafes and shopping and for the kids you can’t go past the Big Buzz Fun Park.


The park itself is quite large and very picturesque with many trees and of course the Wallamba River.  Plenty of tables and chairs around to take in the views and enjoy a BBQ by the river.


If you are into boating, jet skiing or water skiing, you really need to get yourself up to this caravan park.  This place is heaven on earth if you are into water sports.


From the moment we arrived we were impressed.  The check-in process was easy and the staff were friendly and helpful, giving us maps and brochures for the area, including some discount coupons to use in town.  There was a lot of tourist information on display at reception as well and the staff seemed very knowledgable about the area.


As far as the park itself is concerned, below is a list of the various park facilities.



-Boat ramps offering access to the river

-Resort style swimming pool

We chose to stay in a Superior Riverfront Villa.  These cabins sleep 5 people.  Our cabin consisted of a double bed in one room and a double bed with single bunk above it in the other.  We believe some of their other cabins have slightly different sleeping configurations.

These particular cabins have complete river frontage and large outdoor balcony areas to take in the views.  It’s the perfect place to sit and relax with a beer in hand and watch the sunset or just watch the world pass by.

Perfect spot to take in the view with a beer in hand!
