Wooli provides a unique beach holiday experience with an opportunity to step back in time and enjoy the relaxed beach holidays of yester years, without sacrificing any modern comforts. With a focus on pet friendly family water front holiday accommodation Blue River Shack has been fully renovated to make the most of its historic character and it's beautiful natural setting overlooking Wooli River and Yuraygir National Park providing fabulous evening sun sets and water views from an expansive deck area.

Featuring great outdoor living space, this large covered deck incorporates an outdoor kitchen including a sink with hot and cold water, power points and loads of bench space to compliment the large gas BBQ.

There is a large timber table with oodles of space to spread out and comfy chairs for relaxing. This is an ideal location to cook up a holiday treat, the day's catch or prepare it for freezing. 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.

There's also an outdoor shower with hot and cold water to wash off the sand after that refreshing walk along the beach or swim, it’s a real novelty for the kids. Blue River Shack now has reverse cycle Air conditioning making it cool in summer and toasty warm in winter.

This comfortable 2 bedroom beach house is perfect for that relaxing break away with the kids and the family pet. You can laze away on the deck, read a book, take in the river views, or take the kids to the beach which is only 60 metres away.

Blue River Shack brings the ocean and the bush together and truly captures the essence of this restful natural ocean front setting, lost long ago to coastal development in other places.

When your body settles into the comfy, soft top mattress after a busy day of travel arrangements you will know you made the right choice in deciding to stay at Blue River Shack.

What Makes Wooli a great place to Holiday?

Wooli is a magic place to stay untouched by development where you can immerse yourself in nature and an ocean beach experience where you truly feel the pressures of modern day life have been left far away.

As you approach Wooli you will see dozens of kangaroos grazing in paddocks and you get a sense that there is something special ahead. This secluded spot surrounded by a national park and a marine park has a quiet ambience that screams relax, unwind and enjoy the simple pleasures that Wooli offers.

Whether you want to enjoy the surf beach or the private little swimming spots along the river there are memories to be made in Wooli. You can explore the upper reaches of the river by boat yours or hired, go for long walks along the beach, through the national park or from north to south through Wooli.

There are lots of fishing spots along the coast or you can go out to the Solitary Islands for a spot of *deep sea fishing or diving. The local Bowls Club is a must visit and only doors away from Blue River Shack. While there enjoy a meal at Harrys Chinese Restaurant.

There is also "Waives" the café a few 100 metres further along where you can get hot takeaway fish & chips, coffee and the paper and head back to the deck for the morning read or the evening meal with a glass of wine on the deck as the sun sets over the river and national park beyond.

If relaxing is what you have in mind why not check-in to Blue River Shack and check-out Wooli!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location and very clean We all enjoyed our stay. We bought oysters from the shop a few block away. Went fishing and swimming and had lots of BBQs on the deck. The only thing we found wrong was our small dog could escape under the front fence. The main bedroom light didn't work and the swich of the ceiling fan was broken off. Other than that everything was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property This is our second visit to Wooli and our first stay at the Blue River Shack and it was the perfect location and home away from home. We were able to bring our dog with us who loved having the deck to relax on and watch the world go by. We had a small issue with the water pressure in the shower but the property manager sorted this out for us with a plumber coming out first thing the next morning and we were back in action. Great location and walking distance to the local. The house was very clean and the bed was super comfy which is always a bonus when away from home. We will definitely back to stay at the shack next time we are in Wooli.!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location Enjoyed the stay and location despite the heavy rain. Suggest cleaners/owners should check that all lights work (all bar 1 bedroom lamps did not work) and TV audio connections are correctly plugged in. Otherwise great house, large deck with views and BBQ well used. Outdoor shower was fantastic and beach, shops and bowls club all a very short walk. Highly recommend this place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great holiday destination and accommodation Comfortable and clean accommodation, in a beautiful, quiet location. Lovely outlook over the river and very short drive to a patrolled beach. Our 12 year old poodle enjoyed laying out on the covered deck and taking long walks with us on the pet friendly beach, just a very short walk from the house. Great place!
