Wooli is practically an island – a three kilometre long finger of land surrounded by the Pacific on one side and the glorious Wooli Wooli River on the other. And so naturally this is a beach town with saltwater in its veins.
Incidentally, this section of coastline forms the northern sector of the Solitary Islands Marine Park which protects the estuaries, beaches and islands (from Sandon River to Coffs Harbour), so the ecosystem here is particularly healthy.
The Wooli Beach stretches north to Wilson’s Head and is 4WD accessible.
The beach ends abruptly at the break wall that herds the Wooli Wooli River out to sea, and this southern corner is where a lot of the action happens: Fishing off the wall, surfing the beach breaks, 4WD access, Marine Rescue HQ, and fishing boats crossing the bar.
Wooli Beach is patrolled in summer and as you’d expect from such a charming place, has beachside amenities galore.
