As a world renowned diving and snorkelling haven, the Solitary Islands of Wooli are the closest point to North Solitary Island, which has arguably the best dive sites in NSW.

Due to the size and orientation of the island, good sheltered dive sites can be found on the leeward side of the island on most days.

The Solitary Islands are located such that they receive a mix of Northern tropical waters and cool Southern waters. Due to this unique mix, there is an abundance of marine flora and fauna, and tropical species that coexist with non tropical species. It is not unusual to see an entire spectrum of sea life on a single dive, including sponges, hard and soft corals, tropical fish, invertebrates, turtles, eels, rays, sharks and more.

Surrounded by the National Park, Solitary Islands Marine Park Resort is the perfect base for your next bushwalking adventures.

Interesting and varied walking is assured with the vast heathland plains, long sandy beaches, crystal clear creeks, lagoons, rocky headlands, abundant wildflowers, birdlife and fauna.

Anglers and fishermen alike will be spoiled for choice as the Wooli River is one of the cleanest rivers of NSW and its 20km of estuarine habitat ranges to contain mangroves, seagrass and salt marsh.

Here you can expect to catch: Bream, Mangrove Jack, Whiting, Blackfish, Flathead and Mudcrabs, or collect oysters from the river banks and rocks. Catch your own bait with yabbies easily pumped from the sandbanks at low tide. Please see DPI for bag and size limits and Marine Park Authority for zoning map
