Urunga is home to a large retiree population, over 65%. Consequently, the largest employer is healthcare closely followed by retail, construction and tourism.
Although Urunga itself only has one public school, nearby towns such as Raleigh, Repton and Bellingen provide a full range of schools to choose from.
Local shops provide for most needs but you’ll have to go out of town if you want a greater choice. To relax, grab a pub meal at the old Ocean View Hotel which overlooks the water or browse the displays at the Urunga Museum.
In essence, recreation in Urunga is all about the natural beauty of the place. The beaches, the rivers and the wetlands are outstanding and there’s also a convienient boardwalk to explore.
You’ll have to be quick to snap up the occasional riverside plot that may become available. Most land that’s currently on offer is on the outskirts of town. These are mostly pleasant country blocks and there are lots to choose from. Of course, partnering with the best builder in Urunga will ensure you get the best value package and the best possible outcome, no matter where you choose.
