ULITARRA CONSERVATION SOCIETY INC.
We acknowledge the traditional lands of the Gumbaynggirr people
“Ulitarra Bushwalkers” and “Ulitarra Mid-Week Walkers” are sub-groups of the Ulitarra Conservation Society Incorporated, a local conservation organisation dedicated to the preservation of our environment. The society was founded in1971and aims to provide education in natural history together with a voice on matters of conservation and environmental concern. Since 1980, a diverse range of walks and camps have been enjoyed.
Members promote bushwalking and foster appreciation and conservation of the environment and support the establishment and maintenance of national parks and wilderness areas.
The name Ulitarra (Ulidarra) comes from the all-powerful Aboriginal god who was the creator of the Gumbaynggirr people who inhabited the coast between the Nambucca and Clarence Rivers. Ulitarra believed it was a crime to misuse the environment and this would invoke his wrath. The society adheres to his philosophy.
The Ulitarra Society holds a meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except January), commencing 7.30pm. Due to the closure of Club Coffs (April 2015) we have yet to choose a meeting venue. The committee welcomes the attendance of any member or visitor at these meetings.
Annual memberships are due January 1.

Single $15.00 Pensioner single $12.00
