About Wooli

Wooli is on a narrow peninsula between the beautiful Wooli Wooli River and the Solitary Islands Marine Park, a haven for dolphins, turtles, corals and whales during their annual migration. Delicious Wooli oysters are harvested from the pristine river.

At the southern end of the Clarence Valley and just 45 minutes’ drive from Grafton, Wooli has retained all the allure of a beach holiday town. Enjoy unspoiled beaches and enchanting wilderness as well as swimming, surfing, fishing, kayaking and diving – and freshly shucked Wooli oysters. Places to stay in Wooli suit a range of budgets and choices, from motels and holiday homes to caravan parks and campgrounds.

Boating on the Wooli Wooli River

Surrounding Wooli is Yuraygir National Park, the longest stretch of protected coastline in NSW. Relax on gorgeous beaches and explore walking trails, including the Yuraygir coastal walk and Rocky Point walking track. Or take a guided tour with Yuraygir Walking Experiences. Hire a boat, kayak or canoe and explore the Wooli Wooli River, home to all seven species of mangrove recorded in NSW.

Solitary Islands Marine Park is one of the most wonderful dive sites in the world. Wooli Deep Sea Tours offers diving and snorkelling tours in the marine park.
