Situated in the centre of the North Coast district of New South Wales in the Great Lakes region is the beautiful town of Forster. With its twin city of Tuncurry, they are both about 308 kilometres north of Sydney.

Though the permanent population of Forster is a little over 13,000 residents, the total population of the Forster-Tuncurry region is about 19,000 people.

The Biripi and Worimi Aboriginal people were the original inhabitants of the Great Lakes region, having plentiful food in and around the rivers, coastline and lakes. In the Myall Lakes National Park, remains of their numerous midden sites and rock fish traps can still be witnessed.

On his voyage past the east coast in 1770, Captain James Cook sighted the presence of ‘natives’ and called the point of land ‘Cape Hawke’ from the name of the First Lord of the Admiralty, Admiral Sir Edward Hawke.

In 1790, the local Aborigines showed their ‘courtesy’ towards five escaped convicts from the Second Fleet, when they were ‘adopted’ and lived with the tribe until they were recaptured in 1795. These five convicts were reported as being the first white European settlers to arrive in the area.

Timber-getters began to arrive by the early 1800s looking for tallow wood, pine and cedar. Robert Dawson the surveyor, explored the region in 1827, and established the Australian Agricultural Company which was later turned into a private settlement and pastoral activity.

Modern day Forster was first settled by George Godwin and his family in 1856, and in 1870, a school was opened with George Underwood, who was a graduate of Cambridge University, becoming the first school teacher.

A sawmill was soon built in 1871 by John Breckenridge, who took advantage of the regular supply of timber passing through the district on its way to Sydney. This was followed soon after by shipbuilding activity. As with all this spread of settlement and activity, food sources for the local Aborigines became harder to find. In turn, this brought about conflicts, until the tribes began retreating to more remote areas in search of food to preserve their way of life.

A camp was set up by a Scottish shipwright called John Wright in 1875 just north of Forster, across the slender entry to Wallis Lake. This camp was later to be known as Tuncurry. A bridge linking the two towns was built in 1959.
