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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I know that I am very late with my review but I would thoroughly recommend "Blue River Shack" to anyone contemplating a relaxing and peaceful break away. The accommodation is spot on! The cottage is homely and well equipped. What a fantastic place to stay! Especially if you are boating/fishing people, we were neither. We wanted a quiet place to stay with good beach walks. You have the choice of beach or river at Blue River Shack.. One at the back and one at the front. We just wanted a nice holiday with our old English Pointer. A place where we could relax and go for walks on the beach with her. At the time we were given permission for her to be inside with us. That was great!I have recently come back to this accommodation to reminisce, although sadly, we could not stay again as now we have 3 English pointers.. I noticed a review by Rebecca April 2012 about no screen doors on back or front.. That was our only complaint! Not for the same reason though..Although our old dog was allowed inside , she would have stayed outside in the daytime if there was a screen door. Blue River Shack does need screen doors different and obvious reasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I booked this property, and than had to cancel due to work committments. The owners were more than helpful and the refund came through as soon as it was re-booked. I appreciated the quick actions of the owners and would certainly recommend this property to anyone, and hope to stay there later. Thanks guys.
