We’ve been at Wooli for the last five days. Wooli is a tiny town on the NSW coast 50km east of Grafton and surrounded by the Yuraygir National Park. It’s also a great spot to get oysters, which you can purchase from the local oyster farm. This is also a good place to catch mud crabs, we caught some yesterday, so last night we ate 3doz oysters and mud crab between us, all washed down with a bloody mary cocktail. This travelling lifestyle is not so bad. Our fishing hasn’t been very successful in the river, so we thought we might give the beach a go tomorrow and see what we can catch.
Although the scuba diving here (at North Solitary Island) is good, we decided not to dive this time and to wait until we get closer to Coffs Harbour, our next stop. We can shore dive around Coffs Harbour as well as dive the South Solitary Islands, the diving is also a little cheaper.
We crossed the bar in our little tinnie to take a closer look at Jones Point (we thought we might dive here later in the week). However the water clarity had diminished to about 1-2 metres and now the southerly winds have picked up. We’ll leave it for next time.
