Accommodation is designed with the holiday maker in mind. The bowling club is popular with locals and visitors. Woodgate is a wonderful place for a family holiday with many people returning yearly.
On the way back from Woodgate to Bundaberg you can stop at Coonarr and Kinkuna National Park. The national park is undeveloped so visitors have to be self sufficient even to water supplies.
