Ulmarra Ferry in mid-stream

The Ulmarra Ferry is a cable ferry across the Clarence River in New South Wales, Australia. The ferry operates between the town of Ulmarra and Southgate.[1][2]

The ferry is operated by a private sector operator under contract to Roads & Maritime Services. The ferry operates on demand from 06:00 to 23:00, 7 days a week, with three 45 minute breaks during the day. It is closed for maintenance every Sunday from 06:00 to 08:00 and on the first Wednesday of each month from 09:30 to 11:30. If the ferry is not in operation, the alternatives are a 30 kilometres (19 mi) detour via the bridge at Grafton, or a 38 kilometres (24 mi) detour via the Lawrence Ferry.[3][4]
