Caravanning Road Trip – Woodgate Beach

Remember beach holidays from a simpler time? Head to Woodgate, about an hour south of Bundaberg, and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time to a charming seaside village that hasn’t changed since the 1950’s. Traditional fibro houses and beach shacks; unsullied fishing spots; and a cracking bowls club make Woodgate a great choice for an uncomplicated holiday of surf, sun and sea.

This ocean-front town sits along 16 kilometres of beach – a coastline sheltered by the tip of Fraser Island. That’s a recipe for amazing sunrises. The location also offers abundant opportunities for angling. Cast a line straight off the sand or fish from the boat ramp at the end of the esplanade. Nearby Theodolite Creek is bountiful with freshwater banana prawns and flathead. Beyond the water, Woodgate is wrapped in natural beauty – surrounded on three sides by National Park.

Settle into the laid-back beach vibe of Woodgate Beach Tourist Park. Managers Kirsty and Andy can supply tips on the best fishing spots in the area and help you get your bearings around town. The park has large powered sites, luxurious cabins, top notch amenities, and a café and general store on site. The tourist park is also dog friendly.

You’ll find plenty of ideas to kick-start your caravanning holiday on the Caravanning Queensland website. It’s a great resource for travelers embarking on a van adventure anywhere in the state.
