Woodgate Beach

When your appetite is well and truly sated, the stunning white beaches of the Central Queensland coastline are just over half hour away from Bundaberg.

Woodgate has been touted on TripAdvisor as ‘Queensland’s best kept secret’ and who are we to disagree? The beach stretches 16 kilometres and is bordered by the Burrum National Park, where you’ll find four-wheel-drive and hiking trails, hundreds of native bird species and mobs of grey kangaroos looking a little too relaxed! It’s one of the few places where you can camp under stars, right on the beach, with the light lapping of the waves the only soundtrack to your stay. A range of motel accommodation, caravan parks and beach houses are also available for those extended holidays.

In days gone by it's been a horse paddock, rice and pineapple plantations and a wine production area but today Woodgate Beach is famous for its troops of Kangaroos grazing on residents front lawns and relaxed seaside atmosphere. Birders and twitchers alike will take great pleasure in spotting out the some 300 different types of bird species which call the Burrum Coast National Park their home. You can take the Banksia track from Woodgate township, do the Birdhide walk or access the longer Melaleuca track from the Burrum Point camping area. Nature thrill seekers with some horsepower behind them will enjoy varied Four Wheel Drive tracks on offer which lead to secluded picnic spots and camping areas and in the Kinkuna section you can pitch your tent for the night right on the ocean with the stars as your ceiling. Woodgate is a fisherman's paradise with prawning, crabs and some great hidden fishing spots, just ask some of the locals to point you in the right direction.
