Wooldridge Fossicking Area
Wooldridge Recreation & Fossicking Reserve
The Wooldridge Recreation & Fossicking Reserve is located approximately 6km from Uralla township along the Kingstown Road. It offers ample parking for caravans and campervans, free camping, toilet facilities, picnic tables, wood fired barbeques (subject to fire restrictions) and fresh drinking water.
Relax under the ghost gums on a hot summer’s day and be serenaded by the variety of bird life that calls the reserve home. Be sure to keep an eye out for the occasional kangaroo or wallaby passing through.
Gold Pan Hire
We apologise for not being able to hire out Fossicking pans and sieves at this time due to our temporary relocation in diminished area of the Library (we have no financial or retail transactions while here for the duration of the Visitor Information Centre redevelopment). If you don't have your own gear then you can have plenty of fun and good results with some plastic plates and a kitchen sieve!
Pets are allowed into the reserve, but owners are requested to keep them on a leash at all times. Please use the rubbish bins provided to dispose of litter. Shooting is prohibited.
How to get there
Drive along the Kingstown Road for (approx.) 4km. Turn right into Devoncourt Road and follow to the end. A cattle grid marks the entrance to the reserve.
