The name Uralla was taken by European settlers from the dialect of the Anaiwan Aboriginals who first occupied the area.
Uralla is said to mean ceremonial meeting place. Surrounded in history, Uralla is a wonderful place to visit, the
climate is great, the locals are friendly and there is much to see and do.
A short drive along Walcha Road is Dangar’s Lagoon. Once the location of the of local sporting events, picnics, social gatherings and the 1905 Anniversary Day swimming carnival, this area has now been proclaimed a recreation reserve.
Approximately 6km from Uralla via the Kingstown Road is the fossicking area. Nestled at the bottom of the valley, try your hand to fossick for gold.
Uralla Heritage Walk is an easy 2km walk that takes in some 30 historic buildings and Alma Park. Most of the buildings were built in the late 1800’s and are still in fine condition.
