About Woodenbong and Urbenville
Woodenbong, officially declared a village in 1908 is rich in natural and cultural history and is located in the shadow of Mt Lindsay standing proudly at 1280 metres above sea level in the MacPherson Ranges/Border Ranges of Northern NSW, 10 km south of the NSW/Queensland state border. It is situated at the north western border of the Kyogle Shire at the edge of the Tenterfield Shire. Woodenbong is 61 km from Kyogle and 143 km from Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
On a map Woodenbong looks like it is isolated, but in reality it is reasonably close to several major centres, including shopping and agricultural links to Warwick, Killarney and Beaudesert.
The area used timber as its main source of employment in the early years and dairy, cattle and crops soon followed. Since then the village has seen many changes and is now a delightfully hospitable place to reside and visit. Modern times attract many bike riders, both road and trail bike riders, firstly due to the inspiring mountain roads to travel and welcoming hospitality and secondly the signature event of the Yamaha Australian Dirt Bike Adventures being held twice a year in Woodenbong over the past several years.
Woodenbong is a peaceful village that has always had a strong sense of community and pride.
With its country charm and many local businesses, services and a large number of community groups which more than cater for the local residents.
Education ranks highly with an excellent central school from K to year 12 that offers a high standard of education, particularly in agriculture and IT, a Pre-School and Adult Education.
Woodenbong has very close ties with the nearby village of Urbenville and the local Muli Muli Aboriginal Community.
The communities have strong links due to their location and proximity and shared community interests, for example the high school is located in Woodenbong and the hospital is located in Urbenville.
Urbenville is situated 13 km south of Woodenbong mostly in the Tenterfield Shire and Muli Muli is situated midway between the villages approximately 6km south of Woodenbong in the Kyogle Shire.
