HIDING IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE! Pure. Unadulterated. WILD. 104 very private acres, securely sandwiched between a National Park Nature Reserve and State Forest. On a dead end road. No agriculture or farms upstream, only one other like-minded property owner. Secluded, but hiding smack bang in the middle of everywhere! From vertiginous sandstone cliffs on which epipetrics cling tight, right through to palm-filled rainforests, and with two quite different creek systems (including a monster waterfall), you'll be spoiled for things to do and places to explore - without even leaving the property! HISTORY This land is Gumbaynggirr land. Please be particularly mindful of our First Nation's long presence on this land. In the 1800's, white men came seeking Red Cedar, closely followed by settlers having a go at dairying; though logging has remained this area's mainstay. This special property, despite last being selectively logged about 50 years ago, hosts many huge old-growth trees remaining steadfast for your discovery and wonder. And many more are continuing to grow out too. About 35 years ago about nine of this property's eastern-most 104 acres became part of a far larger nashi pear orchard which filled much of the flats of this top end of the valley that you see today. Ultimately they failed to set good commercial fruit, and the rootstocks took over. You can see remnant rows of these trees just south of the property, from along the road. (Beware though - they have spikes that could puncture Caterpillar tracks!) MORE RECENTLY extensive lantana control efforts have been undertaken as we now move into revegetating with native species and implementing a permaculture plan. Today the property is registered with Land For Wildlife and hosts a very wide mix of native vegetation communities. ACTIVITIES Bird watch. Climb. Abseil. Photograph wildflowers. Paint. Swim. In the next valley there's even gold to be found. Explore trails by mountain bike. Whale watch. Surf. Learn SCUBA. Go beach-combing. Catch a mudcrab. Go whitewater river rafting. Ask your host about where to find all the local waterfalls, the best walking, how to find gold, the gnarliest off-road tracks, Anything is possible here in this magnificent part of the world, except perhaps snow and ice.

Family-friendly beach camping near Wooli guide

Overview

Diverse waterways make the seaside town of Wooli a gem of Clarence Valley. Known particularly for water activities such as angling, beachcombing, and boating, Wooli provides campers with an array of campsites and cabins near town or immersed in nature. Yuraygir National Park promises diverse landscapes, a long stretch of coast, and insight into local Aboriginal heritage. Bundjalung National Park to the north is a prime spot for canoeing, kayaking, and biking. And to the south sits Ulidarra National Park with rich forestry, 4WD adventures, and numerous tent and caravan sites to choose from.

Where to go

Yuraygir National Park

Yuraygir National Park has a little bit of everything, including an abundant mix of rocky headlands, pristine beaches, peaceful lakes, dense forests, and heathland. The park boasts the longest stretch of untouched, undeveloped coast in New South Wales, making it a prime destination for beach camping, fishing, swimming, and even whale watching from May to September. Beachside camping in the park also offers access to firepits, potable water, and BBQ grills. Tent campers can also stay in forest greenery at campsites with flushing toilets, showers, and trash bins.

Bundjalung National Park

North of Wooli, a unique combination of beach, river, and freshwater lagoons await in Bundjalung National Park. Water lovers can canoe and kayak along Jerusalem Creek and Evan River or  snorkel through shallow reefs, while hikers traverse Macaulay's Lead and Serendipity fire trails. Along with beachside camping, local lodging and cabin rentals provide comforts like heating, fully-equipped kitchens, and clean, comfortable sheets. At night, campers can gather around the campfire and listen to a local Bundjalung guide tell stories of their culture, heritage, and connections to the land.

Ulidarra National Park

South of Wooli lies Ulidarra National Park, where campers will find beautiful rainforests and old eucalypt forests amidst an ocean breeze. An ideal destination for birdwatching, the park is home to diverse avian species, including wompoo fruit doves and masked owls. Hiking and 4WD trails allow for journeys over rugged terrain to incredible views and peaceful picnic spots. Set up at night at tent and caravan campgrounds in the area with flush toilets, showers, potable water, and firepits.

When to go

Campers visiting Wooli in summer for water activities may want to plan for January, which tends to be the hottest month around 27°C. However, the area is relatively temperate year-round. July is the coldest month of the year with an average high of 13°C. Winter also tends to come with much lower humidity levels. May to November is particularly ideal for whale-watching opportunities just offshore. Or visit from October to April for fresh oysters from the pristine rivers.
