Little Fish Espresso Café at Wooli

We are so lucky to have Little Fish Espresso in Wooli, NSW.  Rest assured you can have the best of both worlds with this fantastic café located just a five minute stroll from your Wooli accommodation, Pacific Dawn Luxury Beachfront Apartments.

Little Fish is run by the dynamic duo of Dani & Taro. Dani holds the fort at the front with an ever ready smile brewing up a range of amazing hot and cold beverages. Dani uses Bun Coffee from Byron Bay which is a pleasure to drink (a little hug in a mug!).

Taro, who is a serious chef in the kitchen, puts his love of local produce and immense talent into every dish he creates. Fresh, tasty & wholesome – perfect holiday fare. The café serves an array of breakfast and lunch dishes with the blackboard menu changing daily.

This intimate café has a wonderful warmth to it that comes from the combination of passionate owners who love what they do in our little slice of paradise – Wooli! This family team certainly has the work/life balance thing going on. They may disagree during mid summer when we welcome thousands of tourists to Wooli and Minnie Waters!

Be sure to drop into Little Fish Espresso at 33 Main Street, Wooli from 7am to 2pm Thursday to Monday. (Closed Tuesday & Wednesday) but thankfully open 7 days during peak holiday periods for your caffeine fix!

Don’t take our word for it – see below for some great reviews from Facebook & Trip Advisor:


Great Coffee, delicious carrot cake muffins, delicious food for breakfast, morning coffee and for lunch. This cafe is an unexpected gem in this cute little town. The owner is lovely and her staff are very efficient. If you go to Wooli you must visit this cafe.


This little cafe never disappoints, in fact it exceeds our expectations every time! The food is like a dream come true and the owners are the loveliest people ever. I love everything but especially the daily baked muffins and chicken mornay pies w/ salad.


Excellent coffee and food – we visited Little Fish every morning of our holiday for coffee and croissants and will definitely be back next time we’re in Wooli. The owners are just so lovely too.


Awesome Cafe here in Wooli, Smoothies are to die for as are the pepper steak pies.


Amazing coffee, great food, wonderful service

One of the highlights of going to Wooli for a break away from it all is knowing I don’t have to forego good coffee. In fact it’s better coffee that you get in most trendy city cafes. Dani and Taro have got it spot on – great takeaway food (home made pies, sausage rolls and dream-worthy muffins) – as well as beautiful breakfasts and lunches to have there sitting in the sun. I’m so happy they brought their amazing skills and friendly service to Wooli.


Stunning coffee and outstanding service.

Dani and Taro are just the best when it comes to good coffee and a delicious small selection of great cafe food. Quality is the key but personal service makes it special every time we visit.


Amazingly Delicious

Wow what a great little cafe, friendly service (thanks Dani) and exceptional food. The pies and the pork wraps are wonderful but the BEST home baked custard tarts we have ever tasted were the highlight.

A Unique Family Event in Wooli – Goanna Pulling Championships


This year on Sunday, 30 September, Wooli will play host to the 33rd annual Australian Goanna Pulling Championships.

You may ask what this is all about and Warning Spoiler Alert – there are no actual goannas used during this family friendly festival in Wooli.

The Australian Goanna Pulling Championships is where two combatants face off on all fours on Goanna Mountain for a tug of war style competition. There are weight categories for the men’s and women’s event for the chance to win the prized belt and prize money.

This flagship event is a popular draw card for the sleepy, yet stunning coastal town of Wooli in Northern New South Wales. It attracts upwards of 3,000 visitors to the town every October Long Weekend.

Commencing at 9am the fun packed day includes age & novelty races for all to participate. Stand back and watch in amazement as the woodchoppers demonstrate their precision chopping skills and individual events.

This truly is a unique event that is fun for the whole family. Other events include:

  • Tug of war Brick carrying races
  • North Coast Axeman event
  • Sprint age races
  • Market stalls
  • Food & beverage stalls
  • Carnival rides
  • Live Music

The whole Wooli community turns out for this event and is only made possible with the support of the Wooli Rural Fire Service, Wooli SES and Wooli Volunteer Marine Rescue as well as the wider Clarence Valley region.
