Bulahdelah is located on the Pacific Highway 235 kms north of Sydney (an easy 2.5 hour drive) and is situated on the banks of the Myall River.

Bulahdelah is the gateway to the Myall Lakes in the Port Stephens region.

Bulahdelah is also the gateway to the Great Lakes - an area which includes Seal Rocks, Smiths Lake, Pacific Palms, Forster, Tuncurry, Wootton, Nabiac and Stroud.

If you are driving north on the Pacific Highway from Sydney, Bulahdelah is a good place to stop for a break. Although a by-pass is under construction, Bulahdelah is currently one of the first towns you will come to at the end of the freeway.

Wade Park in Crawford Street provides clean public toilets, picnic tables under shelter and a children's playground. There are a number of cafes and bakeries along Main Street. Cafe on Main is a favourite for fresh, home made cakes, pastries, sandwiches and light meals.

The Bulahdelah Visitor Information Centre is an excellent starting point for information on this region.
