Woodgate beach offers a stunning curve of white sand over 16 kilometres long, backed by a continuous sweep of shady she-oaks. The township offers a quiet and picturesque place to relax, unwind and enjoy a natural experience. The calm ocean waters are protected from strong swells by Fraser Island, and the shallow seas here are home to dugongs and turtles.

The town is stretched behind the esplanade and is an eclectic mix of traditional 'Queenslander' style homes, 1950's beach shacks, modern homes and some more palatial designs. Kiosks, a restaurant, hotel and accommodation are located here. To the north lies Theodolite Creek - a breathtaking expanse of white silica sand perfect for swimming and fishing and to the south, Walkers Point - a small fishing village near the mouth of the Burrum River.

Surrounding Woodgate on all landward sides is the Burrum Coast National Park - Woodgate and Kinkuna sections, preserving a rapidly disappearing snapshot of what much of the Southern Queensland coast once resembled. Low forests of heath, eucalypt, native cypress and banksias are sprinkled with still tea-tree stained lagoons and luxuriant cabbage tree palm groves. Boardwalks and walking trails lead from Woodgate through the park and for the more adventurous, Four Wheel Drive trails lead to national park camping grounds and secluded beachside picnic areas. The wildlife from the national park makes regular appearances in town - kangaroos frequent the bowling green and emus make an odd sight as they wander along quiet streets. Rainbow lorikeets frolic amongst the trees and from July to November - the waterspouts of migrating whales are often seen offshore.

The area is popular with families, birdwatchers, nature lovers, Four Wheel Drivers and those looking for a taste of old fashioned beach holidays, without the bright lights, high-rise and cafe strips.
