Wonga Beach is located in Far North Queensland and forms the southern side of the mouth of the majestic Daintree River. The school is situated 300m from the beach and is set between the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree World Heritage listed Rainforest.
Wonga Beach State School has a long and distinguished history that precedes the opening of the school in 1999. This beautiful new school was built to replace the facility at Rocky Point.
Rocky Point State School opened on the 23rd of February, 1939. On opening day, there were 42 students enrolled [and only 5 desks to sit at!!]. Mr Kevin Whouley was the only teacher on staff and he remained at Rocky Point until 1953.
In 1999 the staff and students bade farewell to the little school building on the hill and marched down Snapper Island Drive to the new facility at Wonga Beach.
