WOODGATE BEACH GAMES HIRE
For something a little different, get in touch with the team at Woodgate Beach Games Hire and set up a giant chess set overlooking the beach. Or perhaps a game of croquet or a game of giant naughts and crosses is more your style? For all that and more, visit woodgatebeachgameshire.com.au.
TAKE A WALK THROUGH THE NATIONAL PARK
Situated at the Woodgate section of the Burrum Coast National Park, there are several walks on offer ranging from easy to moderate.
The Banksia Track will take you on a two-hour journey over swampland, before heading into an open forest and wildflower territory. Access is from Woodgate Beach township vis Sith Ave, and along Acacia St. For information, visit npsr.qld.gov.au.
