If you are looking for a beautiful location for a picnic as you are driving along the Pacific Highway in Northern NSW, stop in a Woodburn.
Growing up in Tweed Heads, we regularly travelled south to Nambucca Heads – and Woodburn was the first port of call. With bakeries and cafes across the road, and parking close to the loo, plus playground – right on the banks of the Richmond River, it was perfect.
Stopping there last month, I can see it is more so. The only downfall is it is so popular, parking can be an issue.
It now has a vibrant Visitor Centre, riverside beach, upgraded playground, more picnic tables, pergolas and landscaping – thanks to a multi million makeover into the foreshore.
Although there are no campgrounds or caravan parks listed in Woodburn, there is a dump point (find it on our Camps Australia Wide App). It is the gateway to Evans Head where you’ll find a caravan park, and Broadwater and Bundjalung National Parks, the latter home to renowned Black Rocks Campground. West takes you to Coraki, Lismore and Bungalwalbyn National Park. Richmond River Camping is also nearby.
