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. Please feel at ease calling me to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the suitability of our properties for you and your families needs.
Rod Wilson purchased this Apartment in 2016
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
Everything is in walking distance or available via courtesy bus. The beach is 60 meters away and river 20 meters. We have not compromised the standard of our accommodation because we are pet friendly. We provide free WIFI. The apartment also has reverse cycle air conditioning complemented by ceiling fans to boost the air flow. A free kayak is available for guests. Captain's Bridge is light and airy and decorated in cooling aqua and white to calm the senses and help you get into holiday mode. Surrounded by a national park and a marine park, Wooli has an atmosphere that is removed and distant from our hectic lives. The clean ocean air works at relaxing the mind as much as the soul and that is why we love Wooli.

Very basic, but very clean and it had everything we needed. Lovely that we could have our 'fur child' with us!
Sitting out on the veranda was lovely.
Great that there was a BBQ, also.
Thank you Anne for such a great review. We have installed a new $4,000 mattress to the main bedroom since you stayed and we have a kitchen guy coming next week to modify the kitchen to add a dishwasher and additional cupboard space to improve our comfort rating. Once again thanks your your great comments and hope to see you back at Blue River Apartments - Wooli some time soon.
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.
