Forster, located on the Lakes Way south of Taree, is linked to its twin coastal town of Tuncurry by a bridge across Cape Hawke Harbour on Wallis Lake.

Forster is a large holiday resort town, bounded on one side by the Pacific Ocean and on the other by the calm waters of Wallis Lake. Swimming and surfing are popular activities along the several ocean beaches, while boating and fishing are popular on Wallis Lake.

To the south of Forster, at Cape Hawke, is a lookout (450 metre steep walk) which offers spectacular views of the surrounding headland.
