Holiday accommodation in Wooli, New South Wales

For a holiday that really will mean getting away from it all, head for Wooli, on the Far North Coast of New South Wales. This little village, surrounded by a national park and a marine reserve, is a little slice of isolated perfection, ideal for those keen to enjoy a laidback, quieter break.

Wooli offers terrific fishing and swimming opportunities, while anyone interested in exploring Australia’s awesome natural habitats will be spoiled for choice. Its place on the backpacker route up Australia’s eastern seaboard and its proximity to Sydney has also provided Wooli with a good choice of holiday rentals, including serviced apartments and holiday villas.

The natural world

Long considered one of the best-kept secrets on the Far North Coast, Wooli’s beauty seduced European settlers in the mid 19th century. By 1861, the area was a camping reserve and eventually was settled in the early 1900s. The Wooli Wooli river is considered Australia’s cleanest and the early industries of oyster harvesting and fishing remain a mainstay of the village, while holidaymakers take advantage of the abundant waters of the coast and river estuary to enjoy recreational fishing.

Wooli’s position makes it possibly unique in Australian ecology. Surrounded on three sides by Yuraygir National Park and on the fourth by the Solitary Islands Marine Reserve, Wooli offers access to some of the finest walking trails and sand dunes on the eastern seaboard. Popular with both surfers and families, Wooli’s holiday accommodation suits all budgets and its subtropical climate makes it a fine all-year-round destination.

The marine reserve that includes the shores, reefs, islands, beaches and estuaries stretches for some 50 miles along the coastline and the amazing diversity of marine life on display will wow every visitor. The coral reefs invite divers while deep sea fishing will tempt the sporting keen to land some of the 280 varieties of fish that make their home in these waters.

Take a whale-watching trip and see these magnificent mammals making their way along the coastline to their breeding grounds in the Antarctic. Dolphins are also plentiful. Or head into Yuraygir National Park where more than 60 miles of coastline include amazing forests, heaths, estuaries and swamps.

Dock of the bay

A short drive south from Wooli is Coffs Harbour, one of the North Coast’s premier resorts. Fast gaining a name as a celebrity retreat, Coffs Harbour has an abundance of great shopping, restaurants, bars and a busy beach scene.

A further drive inland through Yuraygir National Park takes you to the picturesque town of Grafton, famous across Australia for its jacaranda trees. First planted in the 1870s, these stunningly beautiful mauve blossoms in 24 different parks across Grafton are a magnificent sight in spring and not to be missed.

For more whale-watching opportunities and excellent fishing, head north to Yamba, one of the biggest towns on this part of the North Coast. Close to Yamba is the World Heritage-listed Iluka Nature Reserve, where remnants of the once extensive coastal rainforest remain.

Choosing holiday accommodation in Wooli will give holidaymakers the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful location while also being close to some of the area’s other superb attractions.

Here comes the sun

Wooli enjoys the subtropical climate typical of the Far North Coasts. Its spring is warm, its summers hot (with regular rainfall) and its winters are cool and dry. Average daily temperatures during the summer months from January to March are around 30°C – sunworshippers should cover up well with sunscreen as the coastal breezes can hide the deceptively hot temperatures. Check out holiday rentals in Wooli that offer air conditioning, which will be a boon on those hot summer nights.

Getting there

The direct route for UK travellers heading to the Far North Coast and to Wooli is through Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport. Depending on your budget, you can choose from the regular coach services that leave Sydney for the coastal towns or go for car rental, an option that provides much greater freedom for travellers. Car hire can be arranged when booking your holiday accommodation in Wooli.

Great location with a view of the sea from the dune bench and a short walk to the beach. Wooli is a beautiful quiet and friendly place and we will go back again. Sadly on our last full day fencing contractors came without notice in the morning and left significant debris along the entry path nearly blocking the front door. Frustrating and if we had known we would not have booked during that time.

(Love the hanging branch for clothes - very clever and looks great)
