Mount Ulandra is a mountain with an elevation of 761 metres (2,497 ft) AHD[1] that it located within the Ulandra Nature Reserve in the South West Slopes region of New South Wales, Australia.

The mountain is located approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) south-west of Cootamundra and 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) south-east of Bethungra.[1][2] Atop the mountain are telecommunications towers, including television broadcast towers for all television networks covering much of the Riverina region. The reserve is located on the western hills of the Southern Tablelands. To the west of the reserve lies an undulating 200–300 metres (660–980 ft) above sea level plain which rises abruptly at Mount Ulandra's summit.[2] The reserve was dedicated in 1981 to protect stands of Cootamundra Wattle.[2]
