Urunga is a small town on in 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, 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 Oo-run-ga), is derived from the Gumbaynggir word Yurūnga (pronounced Yu-roon-ga), which is derived from the word for long yurūn in reference to "long white sands".There are two main streets, and both a bowling club and a golf club. A weekly 6-a-side soccer competition is held on Thursdays at the Oval on Morgo Street, colloquially known as the Cabbage Patch or simply 'The Patch'.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.Urunga railway station opened on the North Coast line in 1923 and continues to be served by country passenger trains.
