Woodgate

You don't make the top beaches list without actually having a beaut beach on offer and Woodgate does not disappoint. Over 16 kilometres of largely untouched, white beaches stretch as far as the eye can see, with softly the lapping waves of the Southern Great Barrier Reef providing the soundtrack to your stay.

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.

If you are planning a visit around Easter book ahead as a lively and vibrant events calendar which sees thousands flock to the town over the Easter long-weekend turns a town of about 800 into 40,000 for a few days.

Keep an eye out during whale migration as dolphins and whales are often spotted offshore and if you see a turtle nesting, let her do her thing before getting too close.

White stretches of pristine beach, bushwalks and unparalleled bird spotting will just get you started in this hidden gem which has families and friends returning year after year.

So say sayonara to the kanga-troops on your way out and start counting down the days until your return.
