About Rod Wilson
Our family has holidayed in Wooli for over a decade. When the opportunity came up for Cath and I to purchase this small block of holiday apartments we grabbed it. We have spent a lot of time in Wooli, and have become very passionate about this village. Wooli has a calm ambience that resonates with us. We have two children and they have had many adventures here. As a family, we swim in the surf, frolic in the river and tidal lagoon, take boat trips up the river, ride our bikes up to the sea wall, watch out for dolphins and whales, keenly identify the myriad of birds we see, star gaze, watch the moon rise over the water, the sun set, shower outdoors, marvel at other fauna that crosses our paths and appreciate the soothing ambience that Wooli imbues. We have also have been involved in the dune restoration work that has made an amazing impact on the stability of this ecosystem. And we aim to continue to contribute to Wooli. We enjoy meeting new people and hearing about the great times our guests have had while holidaying at Blue River Apartments. The stories we really like to hear are the ones about children's firsts: first fish caught, first solo ride, first wave surfed, and the delight in our guest’s eyes as they relate these stories. These bring back memories of our children’s firsts and one of the reasons we fell in love with this village.

Why Rod Wilson chose Wooli
Cath & I purchased Blue River Apartments from a second generation ‘Woolinesian’ family who have become very good friends. They have retired but still live in Wooli. Dad, a builder, built this apartment block with his builder son and deliberately built 4 apartments. One apartment was built for each of his children and their families. Through our friendship we have heard of their family’s stories about the early days of Wooli. We bought this property as much for the integrity of the building as for the history it comes with. The shed ,on the side of the building, was relocated from a timber yard up country, where it sheltered the locomotive. Pretty soon, we will attach this to Quarterdeck. This will become a kitchen/ living space. We aim to maintain as much of the character as possible. We have renovated the apartments, as modern living has changed since it was first built, with guest comfort our top priority. We have added outdoor hot cold showers, courtyards, modern conveniences and comforts. We have focused on alfresco holidaying because that’s how we holiday. If its meets our expectations we hope that you too will very happy to create some of your own holiday memories here. Kind regards Cathy & Rod
What makes this Apartment unique
Admiral’s Deck is an air conditioned apartment with free WiFi. It is light and airy with lofty, vaulted ceilings and fans that circulate the coastal vibe throughout the apartment. Dressed in aqua and white this cooling palette underscores the attention to detail. The entertainer’s kitchen; with loads of storage and bench space, dishwasher, icemaker, French door fridge – for those large platters of seafood – and views over the river, gives you loads of dining options. Start the day at the breakfast bar, grab lunch and bring it back to sit on the deck and enjoy the coastal breeze that wafts down the lane, enjoy pre- dinner drinks from bar stool vantage points and watch the sun set, barbeque the day’s catch and sit around the 8 seater dining table waiting to see if the Tawny Frogmouth Owl will pay a visit. The travertine and white bathroom is an oasis with free standing bath and rainwater showerhead. Lock yourself away and enjoy a candlelight bath. Wake up in the morning, open the shutters and gaze out at the ever changing river as you plan your day. In winter, snuggle up in front of the fire place from the living room or master bedroom. For bedroom privacy, close off the barn doors and enjoy the fire in the living room alone or keep the doors open and have views between the rooms. This makes for a great, romantic winter escape. All year round, Admiral's Deck is a great location to holiday. We hope you'll holiday with us in the not too distant future.

A lot of care has been put into the Admiral’s Deck, which makes for a carefree holiday experience. Thanks Rod!
Spacious, great deck space and aspect, lovely kitchen.
Never been to Wooli before and we loved it. The apartment was light and airy, well equipped and we really appreciated the aircon.
Fantastic for my husband, myself and a little dog
The property was amazing, beautiful in decor, spacious, great view of the river from the large balcony first floor.
Our little dog was very safe as she had her own grass courtyard which she could access herself
I very much recommend this apartment Admiral’s Deck

Wooli is situated on a peninsula surrounded by Solitary Island Marine Park and Yuraygir National Park. For kids, it's time away from electronics and time to fish, swim, ride bikes, play on the sand dunes, bird watching, chasing sand crabs, frolicking at the surf or river edge. For adults, it's time to unwind and maybe even a bit of romance. Organised activities include bush walking, deep sea fishing, scuba diving and boat hire. Fishing is a big attraction in Wooli from the simple: throw a hand line into the river to the sophisicated: launch your boat and head offshore or join Wooli Dive Shop's guided fishing trips. Enjoy dining outside and watch the sunset. Evening bird watching will keep the kids busy or later on, star gazing will soothe the souls of young and old. Wooli, is situated on coast adjacent to Grafton, and is ideally located to enjoy the major events that Grafton hosts as well as the pleasures of a beach holiday.
