There are very few shops in Woodgate and the energy is laid back and relaxing. The river inlet and ocean were a main part of our adventures and we also enjoyed some 4wding through the National Park to Burrum Point to fit in a spot of fishing. This was a great place to fly the kites to!
We really enjoyed Woodgate. It is stress free and you can relax and unwind in a natural setting with the magical sounds of the ocean in the background. Utter bliss!
After Woodgate we headed to Bargara because we were excited to see the female turtles laying their eggs and wanted to share this experience with our kids. Bargara is a coastal town in the Bundaberg region less than an hour North of Woodgate. Bargara has a completely different feel to Woodgate. It has a few more tourist shops and local cafes, playground galore for the kids and it was much more suited to family holidays.
Only a short distance from Bundaberg, this great little hideaway is small enough to escape the hustle and bustle, yet easily caters for all your needs. Bargara has the benefit of patrolled beaches, fantastic play equipment, pubs and beautiful boutiques. The kids loved Bargara because there was so much more for them to do. Bargara is a place we definitely want to return to.
Overall, Woodgate is a great place to relax and unwind and Bargara is a wonderful place to holiday with the kids. We were really pleased with our OTS camp kitchen and 4wd drawer system set-up and how convenient it was during our adventures. In fact, we are going to head back to Bargara to see the baby turtles hatching around the end of January or early February.
We look forward to sharing our next adventure with you!
