BULLI, a town of Camden county, New South Wales, Australia, 59 M. by rail S. of Sydney. Pop. (1901) 2500. It is the headquarters of the Bulli Mining Company, whose coal-mine on the flank of the Illawarra Mountains is worked by a tunnel, 2 M. long, driven into the heart of the mountain. From this tunnel the coal is conveyed by rail for 12 in. to a pier, whence it is shipped to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane by a fleet of steam colliers. The beautiful Bulli Pass, loon ft. above the sea, over the Illawarra range, is one of the most attractive tourist resorts in Australia.
