Wooli provides a unique beach holiday experience with the opportunity to step back in time and enjoy the relaxed beach holidays of yester years, without sacrificing any modern comforts.

The deck faces Wooli River and Yuraygir National Park on the opposite bank which provides that perfect peaceful water front ambience and natural bush outlook for a glass of wine and a fine meal with family or friends.

As soon as you drive into this little town you are bound to feel relaxed!
We have been coming to Wooli for many years and this is one of the best stays we have had. You can hear the waves from the front deck and see the river right in front of you.
Loved everything about this little house and the fact we could bring our fur babies made our holiday complete.
Staying over the Christmas break it was fabulous to have the option to put on the air-con if we needed to.
Loved, loved,loved our holiday- thank you so much and can’t wait to come back!

Well where do I start about this gorgeous beachy chic comfortable shack. We absolutely loved staying here. Great location, big deck to lounge around on, outdoor very cute shower, pups allowed as all fenced off for them, lovely comfy beds and just a wonderful place to stay. Rod & Cathy were great hosts, we were lucky enough to meet and the saxaphone concert (thanks Campbell) in the afternoon was bliss.
Close to the Bowlo with the Best chinese food we've had in ages, seafood co-op a short walk away and a great coffee cafe around corner.
Very very relaxing, cant wait to come back. Thank you

We have just had a fabulous 4 day holiday at the Blue River Shack in Wooli. What a cute, quiet, secluded hidden gem. If your wanting a destination just to simply relax and enjoy the beach life then look no further. The little town is made up of beach shacks, a post office with shop supplies, oyster supplier, a Chinese restaurant and a bowls club. There is a local tennis court, a beauty salon river for fishing, boat hire and the most secluded beautiful beach.

The Blue River Shack is the best holiday house in Wooli! It has everything you need for a family and your pets. Your dog's are allowed inside and as our dog's are a huge part of our family, it's great they are not made to stay outside (they would have hated it). This was a huge positive for us as most other houses in the area say outside dog's only. There is a great grassed front yard off the decking which we spent the majority of our time playing sports, ran around with the dogs, ate yummy prawns from local seafood supplier, sunbaked, red books and listened to the birds and the beach. The kitchen had everything you need, lovely lounge room, very comfortable beds (even better than our own), reverse cycle heating and a lovely back area I enjoyed viewing from a comfy leather lounge in the sun.

The place was extremely clean and the house was very warm and cosy... we felt at home and so comfortable. Thank you to the owners of this beach house. We would definitely come back and recommend to all our friends. We could not happier with our stay.
