WoolBay jetty-and-Port-GilesWool Bay, once a busy port serving local farmers and pastoralists, was named after the cutting in the cliff which was wide enough for a bale of wool to roll down to the beach.  

lime-kiln WoolBay

Formerly known as 'Pickering', the town was founded in 1876 and was a wool, grain and lime exporting town. It took its current name in 1940 and the remains of the uniquely designed lime kilns can be seen on the cliff top.

These days its safe, sandy beach makes it a favourite with families.

Dangle a line from the jetty or launch a boat at the boat ramp. Explore the cliffs and coves around the beach at low tide, or enjoy a barbecue at the cliff top shelter and picnic area.
