Caravan Destinations Australia: Bulahdelah

Bulahdelah is a friendly country town set on the banks of the Myall River, its locality is in the Hunter/Mid-North Coast region of New South Wales.

It is the western gateway to Myall Lakes, and is a three-hour drive from Sydney and 90min from Taree Airport.

Bulahdelah is named from an Aboriginal word thought to mean "the meeting of the waters”


Bulahdelah is the ancestral home of the Worimi tribe. They occupied the land as far out as Maitland and Gloucester. 

"The Worimi people wandered over their tribal lands, hunting and gathering food and, because of this nomadic lifestyle, they never established any form of a permanent camp. Their huts were always makeshift and erected with the least amount of effort, invariably being little more than a few sheets of bark leaning against a few sticks placed in such a way as to protect them from the prevailing weather." (source:

From the 1800's, Bulahdelah's identity became synonymous with mining, timber trade, dairy and tourism.
