Just when you think you’ve seen all the coastal gems the Clarence Valley has to offer, Wooli and it’s aqua river and seascapes make you realise there’s still more magic to be found.
What to know about Wooli
Wooli is famous for its oysters! The Wooli Wooli River is known to be one of the most pristine river systems in NSW, thus the purest, most delicious oysters are cultivated. The season for fresh oysters is October through to April.
It’s not just their barnacle friends who appreciate this river! Kayak, hire a boat or try some stand-up paddleboarding in this gorgeous location surrounded by the Yuraygir national park.
Wooli marks the start of the final, and some say best, section of the mighty Yuraygir Coastal Walk. This southern section is just you and the coast, as nature intended it! Hiking across rock shelves, wending your way over headlands and along untouched beaches –truly a wilderness experience.
Just north of Wooli is a series of forest tracks that allows you to trek the magnificent coastal bushland. The tracks offer the chance to take in woodlands, mangroves, salt marsh, swamps, wet heaths and grasslands. A feast for the senses of any nature lover!
Head off the coast of Wooli and you will discover the beauty of the North Solitary Islands and special places like “Anemone Bay” with its blanket cover of anemones and clownfish and “Fish Soup” with its abundant fishlife and Bubble cave – this Island has some unique sites…!!
