Wooli - Candole State Forest - Sandon
Distance: approx. 50kms
Grade: Medium (Difficult on the Bosches Waterhole Road section - 4WD required)
Facilities: Fuel and food available at Wooli. Fuel and food are available at Brooms Head which is only 10km away from Sandon.
* Please be sure to get fuel, food and check your tyres before departing Wooli.
Leave Wooli along the Wooli Road. Approximately 14km along you will see a turn to the left with a sign marked as the start of the Candole State Forest Road. (This turn off is approximately 20km from the Pacific Highway if you are not doing this drive from Wooli)
This road traverses the entire length of the Candole State Forest and is a medium grade forestry road that is maintained for the most part. A new wooden bridge has recently been erected by Forests NSW as part of the maintenance of the road.
Skirting the Coast Range, the track takes you through low-lying tea tree scrub and dry forest. After heavy rain the track becomes difficult to traverse in parts and is not recommended for casual 4WDers.
Leave the Wooli Road and head north into the forest. The road is dissected by many secondary forestry roads but the main road is plainly obvious.
About 30km in and almost near the end of the journey, the road takes a turn to the east past a large billabong and onto Bosches Waterhole Road.
Following this road for about 6kms brings you out onto the Brooms Head to Sandon Road. From here you can turn south into the quaint fishing and camping area of Sandon or go north into the delightful seaside village of Brooms Head.
