Mollymook

Experiences in Australia



Mollymook is the largest seaside resort town in the southern Shoalhaven region - known as The Coastal Resort – close to the townships of Ulladulla and Milton, in southern New South Wales. It is located at just a 3 hour drive (225km) from Sydney and 2.5 hours (200km) from Canberra.

Mollymook is generally considered to be a part of Greater Ulladulla, as development along the coast is unbroken from Ulladulla town in the south, right through to Narrawallee, north of Mollymook.



Life in Mollymook centres around its fine, 2 kilometre long beach. At the southern end of this beach are Mollymook Bay, Collers Beach and The Bogey Hole, the Golf Club and Surf Lifesaving Club. Moving northwards, you can find the large, central expanse of Mollymook Beach which is popular with both surfers and swimmers. Located north of Mollymook Beach is Bannisters Point with its lovely lookout point, landmark luxury hotel and Rick Stein’s internationally-renowned restaurant and just beyond this is Narrawallee, with another excellent beach and a pretty nature reserve - a very popular picnic spot.

Ulladulla is a 5 minute drive or 45 minute walk south of Mollymook. This is the nearest commercial centre and has every facility you might need, such as large supermarkets, car rentals and banks, as well as lots of restaurants, cafes and entertainment options.

Milton is a historic inland town, just 4 minutes drive west from Mollymook. It is best known for its shopping, with lots of interesting antique shops as well as monthly art and craft fairs. It also hosts a number of cultural festivals throughout the year, such as the Scarecrow Festival in April and the Milton Settlers Fair in October. It is also home to the Rainbow Pie Shop, which many will tell you sell the finest pies in the country.

There are a number of national parks surrounding Mollymook. Morton National Park and Pigeon House Mountain are around an hour’s drive north west, offering some incredible viewpoints. Burrill Lake is 5km south of Ulladulla and perfect for watersports. A further 5km south is Murramarang National Park, which has some pretty, tranquil beaches and interesting walking trails.

Close to Burrill Lake is Tabourie Lake, which is a great spot for canoeing or birdwatching. Travelling further south will take you to Batemans Bay, another popular holiday resort.

North of Mollymook lies Conjola National Park, where fishing and boating can be enjoyed on the magnificent Lake Conjola.
