Woolgoolga Creative Community

Sikh-Museum-of-Australia-Woolgoolga

Woolgoolga, a seaside village 25kms north of Coffs Harbour is affectionately known by locals as Woopi. For many years travellers on the Pacific Highway also knew it with the  landmark Guru Nanak Sikh Temple on the hill and a distinctive Indian restaurant  right on the Highway. The area does indeed have the largest Sikh population in regional NSW and in 2019 the new First Sikh Temple opened as did the Sikh Heritage Museum.

As well as its rich Sikh history, the area has a broader story. This is best told by following the Woolgoolga Heritage Trail with 16 stations along the 2.2 km walk each with informative historically themed panels. Add to the mix the Woolgoolga Gallery,  a community-focused library,  the very popular CurryFest event, its Bollywood Markets and a number of local arts groups and it is clear why Woopi is designated one of the Creative Communities of the Mid North Coast.
