Bulahdelah Information

Bulahdelah in New South Wales is a small town with a population of about 2,000 people and was first recorded in 1818 by John Oxley. During 1878 to 1950’s the discovery of alunite saw mining in the area until the State forests took control of the mountainous area and ceased mining for environmental protection.

The logging industry was also a very big industry of Bulahdelah in the past till 1994 when government pressure from the Forestry Commission curbed the expansion of operations. Today logging still exists in the area and supports the local economy but tourism has surpassed the economic contribution of the town.

The Alum and Cabbage Tree Mountains attract tourists and nature enthusiasts from afar. The mountainous terrain holds animals and plants set amongst some very picturesque scenery. One highlight to see is the wild orchids that grow in the area with their spectacular range of colours.

Just 16 Kilometres from Bulahdelah towards the ocean is the Myall Lakes National Park. The National park is nearly 48,000 hectares big and is the perfect holiday for tranquillity and nature activities. Popular things to do include swimming, sail boarding, surfing, fishing and canoeing.
