Sikhs in Woolgoolga – Historical Notes

European expansion into the north coast region began in the mid-19th century and the 25,000-acre ‘Weelgoolga Station’ was established in 1874, before the Woolgoolga township was formally surveyed in 1886. It was during this period that a new wave of migrants from the Punjab region of northern India, and of the Sikh faith, were arriving in Australia, settling beyond the new town in northern NSW and Queensland.
