Over the Christmas period, Wooli’s small population swells to well over a thousand. It is holiday heaven for people who come back every year from the Clarence Valley and beyond for a bit of Wooli magic.
Some of these visitors filled out our recent Wooli Visitors’ Survey. Comments received show just how special visitors think our town is. Here are a few thoughts from the survey:
David believes that “it is important that Wooli protect its assets…as these attract tourists and ensure they return regularly”.
KK thinks “Council should definitely preserve Wooli so there are still beautiful places for our grandchildren to see.”
“If Wooli wasn’t there, I would feel robbed, heartbroken, sad for my children,” said Jo.
Shirley would feel “depressed”, Erinn would be “empty and sad”.
Many agree with Clare that “the loss of Wooli would be a devastating blow to the local area and would signify a worrying trend to many other coastal towns and villages facing similar issues in the near future”.
Karen returns again and again to Wooli because “as soon as you come here you instantly relax. It’s a home away from home, a unique escape from the stresses of larger communities dominated by high rise”.
Tanja says wooli is a safe, quiet town where she can “get back to living life”.
Ian has a special relationship with Wooli: “This place is part of my family history for five generations. I was married here and love it Save the beach! This is a one-of-a-kind place.”
Perhaps the last word should go to the younger generation: “If Wooli wasn’t here, I would cry because it’s just soooo!!! mad. I would so come back its sooo koool as.”
