Arriving at Tuncurry

Forster Tuncurry mid north coast NSW

 Forster Tuncurry mid north coast NSW was my first stop on the way from Port Macquarie to Sydney in March 2017. A population of over 18,000 people it is a holiday destination for many Sydney people who are only a 4 hour drive away.

Over the bridge to Forster

The bridge is 631 metres long and was built around 1956, prior to that it was a half hour ferry trip between the two towns.

This one is almost identical to the boat I owned in Sydney in the 80s. One of my most interesting experiences occurred on NYE 1981 on Sydney Harbour, follow THIS LINK for the story of THE GREAT ESCAPE.
