Ulladulla is the next town encounted when traveling the Princes Hgy north towards Sydney. Ulladulla is another very 'new' coastal resort and very little heritage is present in the town. Ulladulla is already making some terrible development mistakes. Fingers crossed for the future. Ulladulla though is a resort and water sport haven and has wide appeal.
The name Ulladulla is an Aboriginal word meaning "safe harbour". Alternate spellings as Woolladoorh or Ngulla-dulla have been recorded
In recent years tourism has brought significant growth to the town including plans for larger shopping and recreation areas, such as the Dunn and Lewis memorial foundation centre being built.
Ulladulla is mentioned in the lyric of the Australian version of ‘I’ve been everywhere’ made popular by Luck Starr. One of its most notable landmarks is the Marlin Hotel with its big fluorescent marlin on the roof, which can be viewed from the sea
