The Wooldridge Recreation and Fossicking Reserve is located approximately six kilometres from Uralla township along the Kingstown Road. It offers ample parking for caravans and campervans, free camping, toilet facilities, picnic tables, wood fired barbecues (subject to fire restrictions) and fresh drinking water. Relax under the ghost gums on a hot summer’s day and be serenaded by the variety of bird life that calls the reserve home. Be sure to keep an eye out for the occasional kangaroo or wallaby passing through. Gold pans are available for hire at the Uralla Visitor Information Centre for a nominal charge and a map to the area can be provided. Try your hand at panning for gold or semi-precious gems. Pets are allowed into the reserve, but owners are requested to keep them on a leash at all times. Please use the rubbish bins provided to dispose of litter. Shooting is prohibited. To get to Wooldridge Recreation and Fossicking Reserve, drive along the Kingstown Road for approximately 3.5 kilometres, then turn right into Devoncourt Road and follow to the end. A cattle grid marks the entrance to the reserve. Note: Shooting is prohibited.
