town, southeastern New South Wales, southeastern Australia. It lies 40 miles (65 km) south of Jervis Bay. The town was established in the 1820s as an anchorage for ships importing cedarwood to Sydney (108 miles [174 km] northeast), and its name was derived from an Aboriginal word meaning “safe harbour.”

      Serving a hinterland of dairying, intensive agriculture, and lumbering, the town has an artificial harbour from which large sport- and commercial-fishing fleets sail, the latter supplying much of Sydney's fish. Situated along the Prince's Highway, Ulladulla is a growing resort, with fine ocean beaches extending between Conjola and Burril lakes (lagoons). Pop. (2006) 6,242.
