Ulada village is an inland village in Oro Province in Papua New Guinea. To the northwest is Horanda and to the east is Borio. To the south is the Sambogo River.
Late in 1942, the U. S. Army built a built a road to connect Horanda to Ulada and Dobodura to support the battles at Buna, Sanananda and Gona. Afterwards, the area was developed into a major airfield complex that eventually included seven separate airfields in the Horanda area. During 1943, a petroleum pipeline was constructed to supply fuel to the airfields in the vicinity. The pipeline spanned from Strip Point inland via Dobodura. Another branch went south to the west of Horanda and Ulada.
