A popular and picturesque South Coast holiday destination, Ulladulla is renowned for its harbour and seafood. The local co-operative at the harbour is a great place to buy ‘fresh off the boat’ fish of the day.
Ulladulla boat harbour has played an important role in the development of the area. Its establishment in 1859 provided a necessary port for the local pioneering trades of sawmilling, farming and tannery. Today the harbour shelters local leisure craft and a fleet of commercial trawlers.
The colourful Blessing of the Fleet Ceremony is held annually on the harbour breakwater. Started by local Italian-Australian fisherman, this time-honoured tradition sees trawlers being decorated and blessed. A carnival-like family atmosphere pervades the town, capped off with a fireworks display over the harbour.
