About Urunga

In the local language of the First Nations Gumbaynggirr Peoples, Urunga means “long white sands”, and both Urunga and North Beach certainly live up to their name. Urunga is located where the rivers meet the sea with the convergence of the Bellinger and Kalang rivers, making water activities, including boating and both freshwater and saltwater fishing, extremely popular and a major draw card for the area.

Urunga is located between the beachside holiday hotspots of Nambucca Heads, Sawtell and Coffs Harbour, and is the gateway to the spectacular Waterfall Way and the historic villages of Bellingen and Dorrigo.
