Plenty to See and Do In and Around Bulahdelah
Just a couple of ideas!
It is one thing to go out into the wilderness and go camping, but it is quite another thing to stay occupied. Our camp at Bulahdelah offers plenty for people to enjoy, no matter their interest or age. Many people choose to camp at Bulahdelah because of the Myall River. It is the gateway to the Myall Lakes - the largest natural freshwater lake system on the New South Wales coast. It covers nearly 10,000 ha of coastal lagoons which include Mayall Lakes - 5800ha, Boolambayte Lake 1100ha and Bombah Broadwater 2400ha.
Bulahdelah camping also provides the opportunity for people to enjoy boating. There is a boat ramp directly across the river from the park for you to launch your boat into the water. Spend the afternoon exploring the various waterways the the Myall River has to offer. Or, if you want more physical interaction, opt for a kayaking trip along the river. The serene surrounding nature will give you the opportunity to unwind and reconnect. On your kayak trip, you may even have the opportunity to spot a few animals including turtles or even dolphins.
Make sure you conquer Alum Mountain - a walk up the mountain will reward you with sensational views. There is also remnants of our timber cutting and mining past. A wide range of flora and fauna can be seen amid the picturesque boulders. The mountain has been set aside as a forest park by NSW Forestry Corporation for its historical, recreational and natural significance.
Bulahdelah Court House is the most significant building in town. It is now the home to the Bulahdelah Historical Society. The cells out the back are well worth a look. The Society has a fine collection of historical photos, covering the local timber industry, alunite mining and village infrastructure likes bridges, roads and buildings.
Wootten Historical Railway Walk is a 6km walk that follows significant remnants of old logging railways and mossy bridges, passing by waterfalls and creeks, through gully rainforests and magnificent regrowth flooded gums before finishing at the remains of a trestle bridge.
