Pristine beaches

Rainforests and bushlands

Take a refreshing hike through the local rainforest or bushland.

You are minutes away from majestic waterfalls, hikes and trails. Including Sherwood Nature Reserve and Falls walking track.

Rich in culture

The traditional owners of the land are the Gumbaynggirr people. Explore more at the Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Woolgoolga has the largest regional Sikh/Punjabi population in Australia, with 50% of the towns population being Sikh.

Whale watching

A great attraction to the town, Woolgoolga Headland is a renowned location for watching whales during the migrating season in the months between May and November.


Woolgoolga has two main beaches which are ideal for surfers of all levels. Main beach is generally quite calm and perfect for beginners. Whereas back beach is a good spot for more confident surfers.

Mountain bike riding

There’s lots of cool spots to see around town and trails to ride in the State Forest so why not bring your bike and explore.


The Solitary Islands Marine Park is situated off the coast of Woolgoolga meaning there are plenty of spots for recreational fishing, snorkelling and diving.


Explore and enjoy the beautiful scenery, catch the sunrise or sunset on one of the beaches or headland and get some incredible shots to send home.

Body boarding

If you aren’t coordinated enough to try your hand standing on a board then body boarding would be a great sport to try!
