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.
