Being encased by nature ensures that it is one of the purest waterways in Australia. It is one of the best nurseries for the Sydney Rock Oyster which can be purchased in Wooli along with fish, crabs and lobsters freshly harvested by the local fishing fleet. The river can be negotiated for around 20 kilometres by canoe and kangaroos, emus, black-necked storks, brolgas, kingfishers, parrots and all manner of wildlife abound along the banks.

Enter on the day for your chance to win cash prizes in the Men's and Ladies' Age and Weight Divisions.

The Goanna Pulling Championship includes many other events on the day including wood chop, men's, ladies' and children's novelty races, dog obedience trials, tug of war teams, market stalls, and food and drinks. Making a fun filled experience for the whole family.

Fun for the kids with a jumping castle, Old McDonald's Farm, Australian Reptile Show, bungee trampoline, giant ferris wheel, dodgem cars, and cup and saucer ride.
