Woodenbong Progress Association (WPA) is a not-for-profit community organisation made up of volunteers with aims to assist Woodenbong by way of small community projects, such as the half basketball court, skate park and outdoor gym for our children, mowing the local council grounds so Woodenbong always has a well kept appearance, maintaining the Camping Grounds and running community events to fund community requests for support and assistance. Please Note: WPA is not a small business association and operates only at a community level. New members and visitors are always welcome. Meetings are held at the Golf Club on the 1st Tuesday of the month. AGM is held in March each year.
