Welcome to Woodburn

About Woodburn, NSW

Woodburn, known as "The Travellers' Rest" is a delightful and peaceful town situated next to the Richmond River on the Pacific Highway. The town is well known to regular travellers on the Highway as a junction town, with roads leading from Woodburn to Evans Head in the east, Broadwater and Ballina in the north, and Coraki, Casino and Lismore to the west. The river has always been an important part of life in Woodburn. It is an excellent focal point for recreational water sport activities including rowing, sailing, swimming, fishing and water skiing. The riverside beach, park and picnic facilities provide the perfect spot to relax for an hour or a day, while the nearby Bundjalung, Broadwater and Bungalwalbyn National Parks are just a short drive away. Call in to the Visitor Information Centre, located in the Park and open 7 days a week, to talk to a local for some great tips about what to see and do in the area.

Woodburn is in the centre of the local Bundjalung clan territory. It is also near the pathways along which Bundjalung people in days of old would move between what remain as important coastal and inland sites, including sacred sites and hunting and fishing grounds.
