Urunga, New South Wales
New South Wales
|State electorate(s)||Coffs Harbour|
Urunga is a small town on in the Mid North Coast region of New South Wales, Australia, in Bellingen Shire. It is famous for its surf spots (reefs, beaches and mouth of two rivers). At the 2006 census, Urunga had a population of 1,919. The town is south of Coffs Harbour and Sawtell and north of Nambucca Heads. The place name, Urunga, is derived from an Aboriginal word meaning "long white sands" and Yurrun.ga is the name.
Urunga is a fishing ground, with bream being the main sport fish. The Urunga boardwalk, leading out to the beach, was rebuilt in 1988 and extended in 1991. The full boardwalk was completed in 2007. In November 2010, a further section of boardwalk was completed. This extension finishes at the mouth of the river and has taken the length of the boardwalk to almost 1 kilometre. Hungry Head, 4 km to the south is the only patrolled beach in Urunga.
