Soak in the sun on Australia's sunniest coast

This sandy little stretch of beach and its adjacent town are a popular holiday destination for the locals living in and around Queensland, making it feel like a bit of a hidden gem for non-Aussie visitors. Like much of the Queensland Coast, Woodgate enjoys the crystal clear waters of the Coral Sea, and is also situated just north of the Great Sandy National Park. Woodgate is a quick boat ride from Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island. Book your Woodgate vacation rental with the beach in mind, and enjoy your days soaking in the sun.

Kangaroos to your left, whales to your right

Woodgate is deservedly proud of its white sandy beaches and warm Southern Great Barrier Reef waves. The relaxed vibe matches the calm of the sea, and don't be surprised if your neighbors at your Woodgate vacation rental are a crew of local kangaroos. Hiking and biking trails abound, with campsites and picnic spots in between. Book a 4WD tour on one of the offroading tracks, or head out on the sea to watch for whales. Woodgate is a popular spot for much of the year, but Easter is especially festive, with plenty of events to occupy the whole family.

Nature lovers need not worry: you'll never be bored here

Much of Woodgate's appeal is in its easy and approachable access to nature. Whether you're hiking along the Banksia Track Trail Head, spending the day in the Burrum Coast National Park, or lounging on the beach, you're likely to be surrounded by wildlife. Further inland, you'll find the Flying High Bird Sanctuary, as well as the Russo Nature Park, which is particularly great for kids. History buffs will be happy at the Military and Memorabilia Museum, but the whole family will love taking in the sunset from a comfy Woodgate vacation rental.

The year-round sun makes for year-round fun

Woodgate and the surrounding region receives less rain than the northern portion of Queensland. This, paired with its moderate temps from January through December, makes it ideal for travel almost year-round. When it does rain, generally from November through April, it passes quickly. Really, it's just an excuse to hop off the beach, pause for a cocktail, and then head back out into the sun for more fun. And another huge bonus? Unlike further north, there's no stingray season, making the waters easier for snorkeling and scuba-diving.

The locals can be laid-back... or downright wild

Located north of Brisbane, Woodgate lies along the Southern Great Barrier Reef, complete with white sandy beaches lined by warm Coral Sea waters. It looks out onto the sea and Fraser Island, which is the world's largest sand island. If your visit is timed right, expect to watch the whales migrate off the coast, or see dolphins jumping over the waves. Kangaroos are a local favorite, or you can head to the Burrum Coast National Park for prime birdwatching and even more close encounters with the locals.
