Arrawarra is a holiday coastal village just 6Km north of Woolgoolga and lying between the coast and the Pacific Highway. Surrounded by beautiful bushland, Arrawarra offers an ideal holiday spot to those wanting the sun sand and surf without the hectic pace of the larger communities.

My father purchased Arrawarra from Andy Gray in 1946 for 25 pounds and established Arrawarra as a holiday place. He sold it in 1975 for 10,000 pounds and moved to Cairns. He was a Master Mariner and went back to sea, he retired about 160 and moved to Maryborough where he died on the 10th April 1965. I called in on my way to Brisbane about 1977 and was told the place had just changed hands for 1.36 million dollars. I hopr this is of some interst to you.

My father used to fish from Arrawarra before WII in the "Never Can Tell". At that stage there was no silt in Arrawarra creek and you could anchor your fishing boat up beside the High bank.
My father and mother (and 2 year old me) arrived to live at Arrawarra headland in 1946.
During the next 20 years our family built several of the houses which still stand in Arrawarra.
I have published a book entitled: "The Coastal Pioneers" which has information and pictures about Arrawarra and Woolgoolga.

I have inherited about 300 historical photos of the Woolgoolga area from circa 1890 - 1920.
