    The Foster township itself has historic buildings, the historical museum, a relaxing local pub, cute cafes and the Foster Craft markets (held monthly during the holiday season). Close by there is excellent windsurfing at Shallow Inlet, beautiful views from Foster North Lookout, fishing at Corner Inlet, excellent swimming at Sandy Point and Waratah Bay, plenty of local wineries and Agnes Falls (Victoria's highest single span falls).
