Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Named after the town's first postmaster, Mr Woodburn, Woodburn is a small town located on the Pacific Highway between Grafton and Ballina and against the wide Richmond River. Surrounded by lush green pastures, it is the centre of the local dairying and sugar industries with nearby Broadwater (10km north-east) having a large sugar mill. The town is also close to the excellent surf beaches at Evans Head and the Bundjalung & Broadwater National Parks.
