Get around

Unlike some south coast communities, most parts of Ulladulla and Mollymook are walking distance to the ocean beach. There is a hill in the centre of town, and some hotels are at the top of the hill, and a bit further (and steeper) to walk. Its about 45 minutes walk from Ulladulla to Mollymook.

With a car you will have no problems getting around.

Ulladulla Bus Lines provides infrequent services around Ulladulla and nearby towns, and taxis are also available.

Ulladulla is largely a service town for the local agricultural, fishing and tourism industries, and has few attractions likely to be of interest to tourists in their own right. However, it has some pleasant beaches and is a convenient base for exploring the Shoalhaven region.



Ulladulla has the usual mix of supermarkets, food stores and clothing stores for an Australian country town of its size. Several surfware stores are located in the centre of town along the Princes Highway.


Ulladulla is still a fishing harbour, and you have a choice of fresh seafood of the fine dining variety, or served up in batter with chips to be eaten at a picnic table by the water and the leftovers fed to the seagulls. Your choice.


Ulladulla has a variety of tourist accommodation with several caravan parks, cabins, motels, and holiday houses. Cabins book out early over summer. Weekdays during the off-peak season there should usually be vacancies available if you want to stop off while on the road.
