Bridge At Pearl Park In Foster

Pearl Park is found at the northern end of Main Street in FOSTER and is known for its large shade trees, prominent statues and beautiful wooden bridge. This somewhat famous bridge over Stockyard Creek was the site used for filming of the Buddhist funeral in the ABC series Bed Of Roses and many locals excitedly became extras in the crowd for the day.

The park is cool in summer and the coloured leaves are stunning in Autumn, providing a lovely spot for a picnic, a stroll or to just stop and enjoy the peacefulness.

This picture shows what a pretty feature water lillies can be and the red railings add contrast to the lush green surroundings.

There Really Is A Beach At Foster

The end of the road … the sign board at the end of the Foster Beach Road which can be found close to the turn off to Port Franklin.

I didn’t even know there was a beach here until one of the locals drove me down one day. It wouldn’t be great for swimming though as the waters edge is comprised of mud and scrub, but perhaps fishing here may be a possibility – you’ll have to let me know.

This photo was taken on a rainy day and the water is still glistening in the puddles.

Good Park For A Picnic

At the top end of Main Street in Foster is ‘Pearl Park’ where a timber bridge passes over the Stockyard Creek. It’s a cool and shady place to rest on a hot summers day, visit the nearby library, attend the museum right across the road, see the local shops or just take a picnic.
