Gullaug is an unincorporated village located between Lierbyen, Røyken and Drammen, in Buskerud County, Norway. It is southwest of Oslo, about 40 km away near the eastern coast.

Geographically, Gullaug is an area that encompasses little more than a gas station and local shops, but locals apply the label to the entire area stretching from Lierkroa in the north, Lahell in the south, Amtmandsvingen in the east and Spikkestad in the west. This is the area that is served by the Gullaug school. Gullaug chapel dating from 1905 was constructed of wood and has seating for 100 people.

Most the buildings at Gullaug were built in connection with the former Norwegian industrial group, Norsk Sprængstofindustris later to become Dyno Industrier ASA. Norsk Sprængstofindustris, which was founded in 1917 as an amalgamation of several companies, operated locally as Gullaug Factories, which concentrated on the production of civilian and military explosives.[1]
