Wooli is a beautiful seaside village with a storybook setting. On land it is encircled by Yuraygir National Park and the village is located on a narrow peninsula with the Wooli Wooli River on it’s western side and the Pacific Ocean to the east. This section of coastline forms the northern sector of the Solitary Islands Marine Park which protects the estuaries, beaches and islands from the Sandon River to Coffs Harbour in the south.

As the Gateway to the Solitary Islands Marine Park, Wooli is the perfect place for those wanting to explore the natural underwater beauty of the marine park by deepsea diving. Wooli is the only place in the Clarence Valley with a dive shop for those needing diving gear or tank refills.

The Wooli Wooli River can be negotiated for around 20km by canoe or boat. Kangaroos, emus, black-necked storks, brolgas, kingfishers, parrots and all manner of wildlife abound along the banks.

Holidaymakers can find many perfect fishing and picnic spots along the riverbank. The serious angler can chase bigger dreams from the beaches, rocks (the breakwalls are popular) or deepsea where local fishing charters are available into the marine park.

There are many kilometres of secluded beaches in and around Wooli and visitors love to find their own favourite spot to swim, fish, walk or relax.

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to accommodation. Wooli has a holiday resort, caravan park, hotel/motel, river lodges, and a plethora of holiday units for rent.

For a spot of dining out try a delicious meal at the the bistro at the hotel/motel, the Chinese restaurant at the bowling club or the cafe/restaurant at the local kiosk. For a quick snack or meal on the go the general stores or the kiosk. Don’t forget to try some of the delicious local seafood, especially the famous Wooli Oyster.

There is a mini putt-putt golf course and canoes for hire at the holiday resort, tennis courts available to the public, deep-sea diving, fishing and whale watching charters, boat hire and eco tours, and bowling club.

Probably one of Australia’s most unique sporting festivals, The Australian National Goanna Pulling Championships is held every year at Easter. By using a thick leather belt strapped to their heads this sport is a test of strength between two combatants trying to pull their opponent across the line to achieve victory (and it’s not just for the men!).
This is always a huge event for the usually quiet seaside village with tug-o-war, brick carrying and sprint races.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
