The NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park is what beachside holidays are all about

Woodgate Beach is one of Queensland’s amazing little-known secrets, spanning over 16-kilometres of mostly untouched sand and clear water.  Fortunately for all of us, the NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park is in a prime location right next to it.

Protected by Fraser Island around 60-kilometres off-shore, the waters here tend to softy lap at the edges of the shoreline, providing a calm soundtrack for any intended relaxation. Which, by the way, is really easy here given the small population, lack of development and large stretches of beach.

This is what seaside holidays are all about!

Accommodation and facilities

Caravan, motorhome, campervans and tent dwellers can set up on either a slab site or a grass site. Both have power, water, space for your vehicle, and are close to amenities and park facilities. Everything is within walking distance of the beach.

For those who come without their own shelter, the Safari Glamping Tents at NRMA Woodgate Beach Holiday Park are a bit special. A quick peek inside shows they are all the fun of camping without the not-so-fun stuff. Glampers will also enjoy a kitchen, bathroom, sofa, air-con, TV, outdoor dining, bath and BBQ. There is a range of cabins and villas available as well.

Facilities include:

  • Cafe
  • Car and boat washing area
  • Fish cleaning station
  • Tourist information and kiosk
  • Camp kitchen and BBQ areas
  • Free WiFi (that really works!)
  • Amenities and laundry
  • Dump point
  • Refuse stations
  • School holiday activities
  • Pet-friendly sites

What we love

We love how close the NRMA Woodgate Caravan Park is to the beach.  Just a quick stroll across the esplanade to feel the sand between your toes and the water can wash your troubles away.

Bring your furry friend along as well as the caravan and camping sites have pet-friendly options. However, make sure to phone and get approval from the park first as you will need to sign and return a pet waiver.

The onsite cafe at the entrance close to the beach is a huge bonus, particularly when the mid-morning caffeine cravings hit.

What could be better

Those travelling with kids may need to come up with new ways to occupy them as the NRMA Woodgate Beach Caravan Park doesn’t have a pool/jumping pillow/playground that some of the other NRMA parks have. With the beach right next door, this isn’t necessarily an issue though. Especially if you’ve packed a frisbee or a beach ball.

Activities for kids are offered during the school holidays.
