In Woopi Life There is more to Woopi (as the locals call it) than meets the eye. It also offers a fascinating fusion of cultures that becomes apparent from the moment you spy the white domes of the Sikh temple at the highway turnoff. For many years, Punjabi community members have brought the spice of Indian life to this Aussie beach town, flavouring local restaurants and culminating in the irresistible and hugely popular Curryfest each March. More intrigue lies beyond. A flightless helicopter near the RSL on Turon Parade marks the entrance to the Woolgoolga Art Gallery, showcasing the works of regional artists.

WAITING FOR THE WHALES

Walk up to the impressive headland, where sweeping views across ocean and coast provide one of the premier whale watching spots in NSW. Mid year is renowned as peak hour for migratory traffic, but keep your camera (or binoculars) handy as there’s a good chance of sighting whales breaching and blowing any time between May and November.

Woolgoolga Arts & Crafts Gallery Varied

and unique display of arts and crafts from local artists showcasing the vast talent in the region. On display pieces include paintings and watercolours, wooden sculptures, pottery, jewellery and fibre craft.

Like many places that lie unmarked on the average tourist map, Woopi offers a laid-back holiday experience laced with hidden pleasures.
