Whilst Woolgoolga has been buoyed by plenty of road workers in town, we are seeing this easing as progress is being made towards an opening of the Woolgoolga by-pass motorway in 2014. Our big challenge then is to entice visitors off the highway to visit our unique town, headland and beach and enjoy our local hosptiality.
The Chamber is lobbying RMS and Council to finalise and release plans for the signage at the approaches to Woolgoolga and the upgrade of the excising highway which will become the secondary road to access Woolgoolga.
At recent meeting of the Council the Councillors voted in favour of a motion to reduce the services provided by the Economic Development Unit ('EDU') and Coffs marketing. From the information I have received our local Councillor John Arkan voted in favour of this motion along with Nan Cowling, Rodney Degens and Sally Townley.
Nestled amongst natural sub-topical rainforest, marine protected parks and traditional Australian bushland, Woolgoolga (or as the local's call it - "Woopi") is a delightful seaside village that features award winning cafe's, small boutique stores and various levels of accommodation, ranging from family and pet-friendly accommodation to 4.5 star bed and breakfasts
