Capture the Essence of Wooli a River, National and Marine Park experience
About Cathy 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.
Cathy Wilson purchased this House in 2016
Why Cathy 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 House 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 has reverse cycle air conditioning complemented by ceiling fans to boost the air flow A free kayak is available for guests. Skipper's Watch 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.

Property was excellent
This was a wonderful getaway. The flat, location and host were all terrific. Look forward to returning sometime soon.
A great place to stay
Skippers Watch is a great little place to stay in the beautiful area of Wooli. It has a great outdoor area overlooking the river, with the beach just a few steps walk on the other side. Family and pet friendly, we would recommend this to others visiting Wooli.
Thanks so much Lisa for your review. As you mentioned have done a lot of work in the outdoor area overlooking the river adding a new outdoor kitchen, dining and BBQ facilities to this alfresco space as well as the outdoor shower room which we hope you also enjoyed.
