Wooli and North Solitary Island

We took our caravan down to Wooli (on the North New South Wales coast) this past weekend. Wooli is a tiny town, where not a lot happens, one pub, one bowls club, one school, two caravan parks, one dive shop, a few fishing charters, one oyster lease, and a scattering of homes (mainly holiday letting). The nearest grocery shop or pharmacy is in Grafton, approx 50km away.

The weather was the best we’ve had in a long time. So as is our passion, we booked in for a few dives in the Solitary Island Marine Park. We dived with Wooli Dive, they have a great setup and can cater for most ocean activities. We also enjoyed a few dozen oysters each and spent a day fishing (feeding the fish) from the river bank. All in, a great weekend.

Here are a few photos from our weekend at Wooli
