We went to Tuncurry for the October Long Weekend. It is about 3 hours and 45 minutes drive from Sydney. This beautiful town is where Wallis Lake meets the Tasman Sea. The town is surrounded by the Wallamba River, Wallis Lake and the Tasman Sea. It is small village offering plenty of water sports activities. You name it, they have it. They have the Nine Mile Beach for surfing. They have the shark-netted Rockpool framed by the Breakwall which is perfect for swimming (particularly for the little ones) and above all, they have the Wallis lake for kayaking, jetskiing and for fishing in which the town is popularly known for. ‘Tuncurry’ actually means plenty fish in the local indigneous language. The town connects to Forster with a bridge. They offer a beautiful coastal walking track which starts from the Nine Mile Beach (or you can start from the Breakwall) to Forster and boasts a stunning view of the blue crystal clear Wallis lake. The track extends across the bridge to Foster. It is not uncommon to spot stingrays and dolphins in the water whilst walking/running (or even cycling) along the track. The village exudes a relaxing and quiet atmostphere and yet it offers a variety of actvities for adults and kids alike.
