Woolgoolga

Description

Woolgoolga is a town on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia. It is on the Pacific Highway, approximately 550 km north of Sydney and 365 km south of Brisbane. The closest city to Woolgoolga is Coffs Harbour, which lies 25.8 km to the south. Woolgoolga has two beaches on the Pacific Ocean. The area has long been a centre of banana growing in New South Wales, but this industry has declined in the face of competition from Queensland and overseas. Recent times have seen many banana plantations replaced by blueberries after banana sales slumped in the late 1990s. Timbergetting and sawmilling was established in 1883. A government jetty was constructed in 1892 upon which tramways were laid. These led to sawmills in the town which in turn were connected by light railway to the Jesse Simpson Range forest areas. The jetty was demolished over a prolonged period from 1952 to 1956.

Woolgoolga is located about 26 kilometres north of Coffs Harbour on the NSW coast and is a great holiday destination. It has recently been bi-passed by the Pacific Highway but is definitely worth a detour for a short break from driving, or stay for a few days and enjoy this beautiful location.  

We have often stopped at Beach Park near the Surf Life Saving Club to enjoy a picnic lunch looking over the ocean. During our last visit we called at the Woolgoolga Baker to purchase some great bread rolls and then enjoyed coffee from Bluebottles Brasserie.  

Near the beach and walking distance to shops, cafes and restaurants you will find the Woolgoolga Beach Holiday Park - great location, good amenities and flat sites.  Not far along Lake Road is another nice looking caravan park - Woolgoolga Lakeside Holiday Park which as the name suggests is near Woolgoolga Lake. Again this is a very neat looking park which also has access to the beach and you can even walk to town along the sand. 

When you visit Woolgoolga I highly recommend that you head up to Woolgoolga Lookout situated on the headland along Ocean Street. This is the perfect spot for Whale Watching and we found a parking space while towing the caravan so we could sit and enjoy the antics of these beautiful creatures making their way along the coast.
