Bulolo is a city in Morobe province in Papua New Guinea.


Bulolo was once an important gold dredging centre. Eight large dredges were built and used in the Bulolo River, and several of these dredges can still be seen abandoned today, slowly being reclaimed by the jungle. The major industry is now forestry and there are large plantings of Klinki pine (Norfolk Island pine) trees. It is in an area with a vast number of butterflies and other insects.
