Woolgoolga Main beach is a safe clean sand bottom beach ideal for swimming. The Surf Club patrols the southern corner of the beach and is a known safe beach that is very popular with families. Surfing adjacent to the flagged area is favoured by surfers of all levels.
The entrance to Woolgoolga Lake is another popular safe sandy swimming spot on an incoming tide for children and adults alike. You can even paddle a canoe from the Retreat down to the entrance for a swim !
Woolgoolga also has a public pool with children's swimming areas in the town center and just across the road from the main beach.
