Over the past 150 years, the Milton Ulladulla area has undergone many changes, growing from a small timber town and fishing port to a tourism hot-spot.

A look at historic images from across the region’s history shows just how much has changed.

The images also show how much is, surprisingly, still the same.

Buildings erected in the late 1800s still stand proudly in Milton’s CBD while Ulladulla’s buildings recall the business boom-time of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Take a few minutes and get to know the area:

  1. Karisa, a great little picture postcard. I would have loved more of you and perhaps an interview with a local historian. I can’t wait to visit the NSW south coast again.

    Thanks Karisa. It was lovely to see this snapshot of the area. You also speak and present very well. When thinking about the history of a place, I am also curious about how people’s lives have changed. As you mention, a coastal area like this has become popular with holiday-makers, which would contribute to changing a community. Great how a story gets you reflecting on lots of things. Regards, Mara
