Mollymook “Bogey Hole”

A wonderful natural feature at Mollymook is the “Bogey Hole”. It is a large tidal rock pool ideal for swimming with an outer shelf area ideal for snorkeling. In a sheltered area it is attractive for sun bathers and picnics. Nestled between the famous “Golfie” surfing reef break, Beachside Golf course and Mollymook Beach’s southern headland, access is via a short walk around the headland or by vehicle along Riversdale Avenue and Burleigh Drive to the Collers beach parking area.

It is believed that the name “Bogey Hole” is from an Aboriginal word for “Bathing” and was used by Aboriginal people for 100’s or perhaps 1000’s of years as a place to “Bathe” and trap fish.
