The quiet village of Wootton lies on the Wootton Way between Bulahdelah and Coolongolook.

Wootton is surrounded by cattle farms, equestrian enterprises, state forest and national parks. It also boasts an active community based around the community centre plus cafes serving locally grown produce.

Behind Wootton are forests that are perfect for bike riding and trekking. The area is also a great day trip away from the coast.

The Wootton Historical Railway Walk can be found close by in the Wang Wauk State Forest. This six kilometre walk starts off at Sam's Camp Picnic Area, with Wang Wauk Forest Way marking its halfway point. The first section of the walk takes in rainforest and cleared, grassy areas used by logging vehicles in the early 1900s. The walk follows significant remnants of old logging railways and mossy bridges, passing by waterfalls, creeks and through gully rainforests and magnificent flooded gums, before finishing at the remains of what was once a trestle bridge.
