"Great Beach village"

Ulladulla is not for everyone, some people like the hussle and bussle, smells and concrete of the city. Others like to be entertained 24 hours a day by tech driven little boxes and smart phones, while others demand a new eating sensation each night all year round.
Inverserly if you like fantastic beaches, great surf, quite streets, freindly people, some fantastic local resturants serving quaility honest produce, great fishing and water sports and of course the freedom to do what you want when you want- then Ulladulla may be for you. Safe and family friendly, a fishing, dairy and forestry community that still see's itself as a country town with country town values.
Honestly Uladulla is Mollymook and without the ultra rich, crowded beaches, traffic and long weekend drunken rentals.
Great place!

"Beautiful Friendly Town"

Ulladulla and its surrounding towns are a beautiful spot to go and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Pristine golden sandy beaches, and heaps of nature/ adventure stuff to do. Good variety of shops, good schools, and you are only 10 minutes drive to everywhere. Plus, you can buy a house 100m from the beach for under $400,000. You would love Ulladulla if you are the sort of person who enjoys the outdoors and a sense of safety and community. You would probably not be so impressed if you wanted 24/7 access to shopping malls and preferred the pasty complexion of an 'indoors' type person.

"Nice coastal town"

Ok yes when i was growing up in sydney we sometimes had trips to Ulla Dulla and me and my sister Chloe would say to each other 'Ulla Dulla nothing Duller'. Lovely location just not suited to most people as a permanent home. A small qwerky coastal town south of Wollongong.

"Ulladulla -Pretty town with friendly locals."

Ulladulla is a town on the NSW South Coast situated between Nowra and Batemans Bay. This is a pretty town with plenty of water sports available such as swimming and surfing snorkelling and diving and for the fisherman there is some great fishing spots and charters can be arranged. For the kids there is Funland, an indoor entertainment venue that has three floors on games etc to keep the kids happy. There is plenty of shopping in Ulladulla as well as restaurants and cafes. Accommodation options are good with caravan parks, motels and B & B’s nearby. There bushwalking, bike riding and bird feeding as well as arts and craft shops dotted around Ulladulla and the surrounding smaller towns. See Warden Head Lighthouse and from June to November you might see the whales moving along the coastal waters.
