Ulladulla: Beach Breaks Entrenched in Culture

The coastal town of Ulladulla is located halfway between Batemans Bay and Nowra in New South Wales. The name of this holiday destination comes from an Aboriginal word that means safe harbour, and this is due to the calm, pristine waters that surround town. Indeed, Ulladulla is very well connected with its indigenous heritage and many activities and attractions revolve around Aboriginal culture. Go for hikes entrenched in history while admiring ocean views or visit museums for deeper insight into the lives of this area’s early inhabitants. There are numerous holiday rental options in Ulladulla, many of which offer full amenities for a self-contained getaway.

Water-Based Activities in Ulladulla

With steady surfs and clear blue water, the beaches in Ulladulla are top-notch for surfers. Body boarders, snorkelers and swimmers are comfortable in certain areas of the beaches, as well. Children are most at ease splashing around in the various rock pools along the harbour foreshore. The sandy beaches of Ulladulla are underdeveloped and have clean golden sand that is perfect to stroll along. Have no fear if you do not like getting in the ocean, as Ulladulla boasts a free public pool called Ulladulla Seapool, and this contained artificial swimming environment is built right on the shore of the beach, which allows ocean waves to crash along side the deck.

Scenic Hikes around Ulladulla

Pigeon House Mountain is a wonderful place to get your exercise. There are hiking trails up to the peak, and from the top, views over the stunning coastline abound. Walking up and back down at a normal pace takes approximately 4 hours, and for climber convenience, the trails are broken into four parts, which means it is easy to stop and rest.

Another area mountain is known as The Castle, due to its unique shape. Bring along your hiking boots, as this attraction also has great paths that take you to the top. From the peak, look over the town below and out to the sapphire waters of the ocean in the distance.

One Track for All is situated in the northern headlands of Ulladulla and includes four lookout points, allowing you to gaze at the harbour and coast from all angles. This heritage site includes Aboriginal relief carvings and paintings that detail the native history of the area. Non-aboriginal history is also displayed throughout the attraction.

Family-Friendly Activities In and Near Ulladulla

Families travelling to the region can spend the day at Ulladulla's Funland. Admission to the activity park is free, and there are bountiful games, rides and activities, such as putt putt golf and lazer tag. If you’re keen on introducing the kids to local art and culture, various galleries are scattered throughout the downtown area of Ulladulla. Special presentation exhibits are run periodically and the works of artists—both local and Australian are displayed. A number of Museums can be found in the Ulladulla area. A family favourite is Tabourie Lake Museum, where kids can see creepy crawlies and local marine life while adults learn more about aboriginal culture and regional history.

Action around Ulladulla’s Harbour

The harbour in Ulladulla offers a great mix of historic sites and modern amenities. Stroll along the wooden jetty, which was constructed in 1859 and observe the fishermen, watch for marine life or hop on one of the fishing charters that leave from the jetty. Another attraction in the harbour area is the Ulladulla Lighthouse, which was constructed in 1873. The lighthouse is still in use, though it has been relocated to just south of the harbour. Throughout the year, several festivals take place in the harbour and there are many places to grab a bite to eat before continuing with your day.

When to Visit Ulladulla

Before travelling to Ulladulla, consider the season; the summers are typically quite warm, while the winters are cool, dipping to temperatures of around 13C. Even in colder weather, however, there are plenty of indoor activities to keep the whole family busy.

We got away from the hustle and bustle of the sheep shearing industry and couldn't have picked a better home to unwind in! The house itself had everything you could ever need and more !From the roof top patio with spa and bbq, to the downstairs games room with pool table, darts, gaming consoles, couches, board games everything was perfect. Then of course you have the beach a few metres away!!! Absolute bliss! The extra special touch though, was they had the dining table all set up and ready for the perfect Christmas Dinner! AMAZING!! We are so grateful for all the added extras from the heart. Thank you very much Brad and Melissa for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home you should be very proud! Bridgette, Carlos and family
