The suburb of Ulladulla is located on the southern coast of New South Wales. it is situated between Batemans Bay and Nowra. To put this area in perspective, Ulladulla is approximately one hundred and eighty kilometres south of Sydney. This town is rather elongated in fashion and stretches for a full seven kilometres along Ulladulla Harbour. As of the 2011 census, this region is populated by well over ten thousand residents. One of the reasons that this location enjoys a rather populous atmosphere is that it can be found directly alongside Princes Highway.
The rather odd name of Ulladulla is said to have derived from an Aboriginal word that signifies "safe harbour". Indeed, this harbour was considered quite attractive for sea captains in the 19th century and a wooden jetty was constructed in the harbour in 1859. As this location became a popular stopover for ships, Ulladulla soon opened upa general store, a local inn and a lighthouse. Over time, this caused some individuals to settle into the region. There were cargo services to Ulladulla until the 1950s and a tram existed until a few years after the end of the Second World War.
Although this town has seen some notable development in recent years, the fact that the first traffic light was installed as late as 1991 illustrates the fact that Ulladulla is still considered to have a real estate market that is in less demand than some of the lager and more connected suburban locations. While there are some houses for sale and their prices are average in comparison to other locations, Ulladulla is perhaps more desired for the numerous parcels of land that are available nearby.
The nearest rail line terminates sixty kilometres outside of Uladulla and the main forms of transportation are either automobile, care hire services or coach buses.
