Woodgate Beach Tourist Park caters for those wishing a quiet beachside holiday away from the rush and bustle, noise and pollution of city living. Woodgate Beach is approximately 350klms north of Brisbane, an easy four hours drive.
Situated on the Esplanade opposite a 16 klm pristine sandy beach and adjacent to the Burrum Coast National Park, it is set amidst masses of flowering trees with cottonwoods, poincianas and bougainvillea adding splashes of colour amongst tall eucalypts and pine trees, the wildlife abounds with kangaroos, wallabies, emus, possums and lorikeets often sharing your caravan or camp site.
Hear the waves as they roll gently on shore. View the picturesque sunrise or the moon reflecting over the ocean in the evening.
Youd be surprised how much there is to see and do in and around Woodgate Beach, pristine 16 kilometers of white sandy beach from Theodolite Creek to Walkers Point.
Cast a line off the beach or riverbank, or launch your boat from one of the boat ramps (the fishing is great)!
