Description

Urunga is a small town located within 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 2011 census, Urunga had a population of 3,020. The town is south of Coffs Harbour and Sawtell and north of Nambucca Heads. The place name, Urunga (pronounced Yoo-run-ga), is derived from the Gumbaynggir wordYurunga (pronounced Yu-roon-ga), which is derived from the word for long yurun in reference to "long white sands". # History Urunga is a fishing ground, with bream being the main sport fish. The Urunga boardwalk, leading over the tidal Urunga Lagoon then 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.On 8 December 2017, the Federal Court of Australia determined that the Gumbaynggirr People have native title rights and interests over an area of land and waters at Wenonah Head, near Urunga. This determination resolved the oldest native title claim in New South Wales. # Weather # Things to do
